"Even those who are not members of religious institutions and have no particular sympathy for them ought to fear the current war on religious faith" - Dyson Heydon

In this volume, eleven essayists including Paul Kelly, Anne Henderson and Frank Brennan respond to Dyson Heydon's inaugural PM Glynn Lecture on Religion, Law and Public Life, Religious 'toleration' in modern Australia: the tyranny of relativism.

The collection offers a number of perspectives on Heydon's central claim that contemporary calls for 'tolerance' - particularly those directed at Christianity - are often in reality demands for 'unconditional surrender'.
