"Combining rich description with sophisticated analysis, Prayers in the Precincts continues the authors' tradition of close-in observation of the Christian Right during each election cycle. Indispensable." -- Clarke E. Cochran, professor of political science, Texas Tech University
"Beyond sensational headlines and too-easy conclusions, the scholars gathered here carefully assess the impact of the Christian Right on the 1998 elections and provide educated analyses about the movement's future prospects. In addition, the editors' introduction and conclusion provide a number of keen observations about religiously-based movements, and their strengths and weaknesses. Rich in both empirical findings and analytic insight." -- Rhys H. Williams, professor of sociology, Southern Illinois University
"Essential reading for anyone interested in tracking the evolving fortunes of the Christian Right in American politics." -- Mark Silk, director, Center for the Study of Religion in Public Life, Trinity College
