Liberty and the Wall steers clear of superficial controversies over religious symbols, speech, and practices on public property and in public institutions. The determination of the valuable, the right, and the just is far more the commanding question.

In Liberty and the Wall: Of Separation Between Church and State. author Robert J. O'Keefe tackles the controversial Constitutional topic that often pits left against right and religious against non-religious. While many people might think they have a good understanding of the topic, delving into O'Keefe's book will have readers realizing there is more to be learned and contemplated...much, much more.
O'Keefe's premises rest soundly on solid evidentiary research which cannot be denied. The author's conclusions, however, will make even the soundest defenders of the separation of church and state question their own thoughts on the subject. O'Keefe mainly rests his theories on the original documentary evidence, the good old Declaration of Independence. The author claims, rightly so, that the founders of the United States repeatedly stressed that the virtues associated with religion were Kudos are due to O'Keefe for providing a wealth of information that is seldom taught in American schools. The author explains exactly what the Federalist Papers are. These wise words and discussions appeared in newspapers, the social media of their day, permitting the people a voice. Expounding on anti-and pro-Federalist thought-provoking arguments reveals the authors behind some pen names, rationalizations. and insight. O'Keefe explains rather than judges. The book warns about issues that would develop if Americans were no longer moral individuals. The author's admirable handling of these still relevant topics proves that he is an astute student of the Constitution.
