    1. The analogy of the constitution to religions and their approaches to creedal authority and interpretation makes for an interesting read. The book is intellectually engaging and a layman as well as lawyer/law student can read and enjoy it. I liked the conclusion and updated epilogue: "Would you sign the consititution today?"
