    Until very recently, religious liberty was a forgotten freedom in Australia. Australian law offered little formal protection for freedom of religion but most people didn’t know this. The issue was rarely a matter of immediate cultural or political importance.

    Today, in the face of massive social change and contested moral and religious claims, things couldn’t be more different. Questions about religious liberty, and how, and if, it should be better protected are at the forefront of public debate. Forgotten Freedom No More: Protecting Religious Liberty in Australia Analysis and Perspectives makes an important contribution to that discussion.

    The book contains a wide range of contributions from writers sympathetic to promoting religious freedom in Australia. Each of the contributors agrees on the importance, and yet fragility, of religious liberty in this nation while approaching the issue from varied viewpoints and experiences – even at times disagreeing with each other.

    Forgotten Freedom No More: Protecting Religious Liberty in Australia Analysis and Perspectives is a timely addition to the debate about religious freedom in Australia offering a comprehensive survey of the issues involved.
