Book Review by Br Brian Grenier
CHALICE OF LIBERTY:
PROTECTING RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN AUSTRALIA
By Frank Brennan, MA Casey and Greg Craven, the Kapunda Press
(Connor Court Publishing), RRP $24.95
The front cover of book under review features a chalice (now in possession of the Australian Catholic University) which dates from time of the English Reformation when the celebration of Mass was banned by King Edward VI (1547-53). It is an appropriate and eye-catching image for a book subtitled ‘Protecting Religious Freedom in Australia’.
Chalice of Liberty is divided into two parts
(i) ‘Nine Questions about Religious Freedom’ co-authored by Father Frank Brennan SJ (CEO of Catholic Services Australia and Adjunct Professor of Law at ACU) and Dr Michael Casey (Director of the PM Glynn Institute at ACU); and
(ii) ‘Protecting Religious Freedom’ by Professor Greg Craven (Vice-Chancellor and Professor of Constitutional Law at ACU).
