This was required reading for my Law & Religion class. If you have a background or any consicous exposure to the ways that religion structure our political and legal relations (think: Park 51, annual Christmas holidays, etc), this book says all the most obvious things and in discomfiting broad and somewhat dated terms (it was written in the 60s).

For Chinese students, it is difficult to understand the contents about western religion in this book. To better perceive the meaning and the notion Professor Berman intend to express,one needs to learn about the background of the time when he wrote the book. It was the age the author of the book lives,that was lack of conviction and belief of law. To rebuild the belief towards law, disclosing the interaction of law and religion is necessary.
