 About the Book 

While the Christian Right has been the subject of a good deal of scholarly analysis, it has not been adequately studied within a comparative context across time, across different institutional systems, or across different religious communities. InMoreWhile the Christian Right has been the subject of a good deal of scholarly analysis, it has not been adequately studied within a comparative context across time, across different institutional systems, or across different religious communities. In Sojourners in the Wilderness, a host of distinguished scholars examine these dimensions of the Christian Right. The contributors analyze the Christian Right historically what is its relationship today with earlier manifestations? How have its organizational structures and strategies changed over time?- Sociologically what are the current opportunities for Christian Right inroads within African-American, Catholic, and Jewish communities?- and politically what accounts for the affinity between many evangelical Protestants and the Christian Right within the American political context, while such an affinity appears to be lacking in other political contexts?
