Top religious freedom attorney Luke Goodrich receives awards from WORLD Magazine and The Gospel Coalition for new book, “Free to Believe”

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (December 9, 2019)—One of the nation’s top attorneys, Luke Goodrich, was recently honored with two noteworthy awards for his new book Free to Believe: The Battle Over Religious Liberty in America (Multnomah).

WORLD Magazine chose Free to Believe as Book of the Year in the Understanding America category. An interview with Goodrich is featured in WORLD’s December 7 issue which can also be found online.

Additionally, The Gospel Coalition selected Free to Believe as Book of the Year in the Public Theology & Current Events category. In its 2019 book award announcement, The Gospel Coalition noted that Free to Believe is “one of the single best treatments of religious liberty to be found today.”

Goodrich, who is vice president and senior counsel at the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, has won multiple Supreme Court victories for clients like the Little Sisters of the Poor and Hobby Lobby.

In Free to Believe, he helps Christians understand why religious freedom matters, how it is being threatened, and how to protect it. With crisp legal argument, unforgettable stories and faithful attention to Scripture, Goodrich expertly addresses the most pressing religious freedom challenges in modern culture: religious discrimination, abortion rights, gay rights, Islam and the public square.
