Dr. Derek Davis publishes book, named recipient of Religious Liberty Award

Dr. Derek Davis, professor in the College of Humanities, recently published The Oxford Handbook of Church and State in the United States. The book features 21 essays by the field’s leading scholars addressing the complex relationship between church and state.

Davis has served as author or editor of 17 books and has published more than 150 articles in various journals and periodicals.

In large part due to his body of work on the subject of religious freedom, Davis was recently named recipient of Baylor University’s Abner V. McCall Religious Liberty Award. This award honors Baylor alumni or friends whose life exemplify a commitment to religious liberty. Davis earned his undergraduate, law degree, and master’s degree from Baylor University. He went on to earn a doctorate from the University of Texas-Dallas in 1993.
