On Faith is an inspiring collection of the late Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia's reflections on his own Catholic faith, on the unique challenges that religious believers face in modern America, and on the religious freedoms protected by the Constitution. Featuring an insightful and personal introduction by Justice Scalia's son Father Paul Scalia, this book will enrich your understanding of this legendary justice.

Antonin Scalia was a brilliant man and reflected deeply on matters of religion. He shared his insights with many different audiences over the course of his remarkable career through lectures and speeches. As a Supreme Court justice for three decades, he vigorously defended the American constitutional tradition of allowing religion a prominent place in the public square. As a man of faith, he recognized the special challenges of living a distinctively religious life in modern America, and he inspired other believers to meet those challenges.

This volume contains Justice Scalia's incisive thoughts on these matters, laced with his characteristic wit. It includes outstanding speeches featured in Scalia Speaks and also draws from his Supreme Court opinions and his articles. In addition to the introduction by Fr. Scalia, other highlights include Fr. Scalia's beautiful homily at his father's funeral Mass and reminiscences from various friends and law clerks whose lives were influenced by Antonin Scalia's faith.

Included in the book are all sorts of interesting tidbits like the fact that Scalia was an avid fan of the traditional Latin Mass. He was one of those dads who would drive a good distance every Sunday to have his family attend what he considered to be a decent liturgy.
