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. 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?
