Pulpit and Politics: Clergy in American Politics at the Advent of the Millennium

This book presents the most current and comprehensive examination of the religious beliefs and political behaviour at the advent of the new millennium. Based on data gathered during the 2000 presidential election, this study examines the relationship between belief and behaviour, theology and politics, religious commitments and social activism from African-American, Baptist, Jewish, mainline Protestant, Roman Catholic and other religious groups. This is a treasure trove of historical, comparative, and statistical information about the political behaviour of America's clergy.
