"Peter Wallner, former director of the New Hampshire Historical Society library, has given readers a beautifully crafted book about an important New Hampshire legal event... In Faith on Trial, Wallner adds a large amount of detailed information about the words and activities of those who brought the suit and of the lawyers who successfully defended against it. Most importantly, he draws from his research insightful conclusions about the motives involved in bringing the suit. The book... is easy to read and hard to put down."
