From the Publisher"McCloud has taken the lead among scholars eager to reinsert class into studies of American religion. . . . McCloud provides us with a better tool for sifting through the symbiotic relationship of class and religion and how these together help us understand religious affiliation."
-Journal of Religion
"Offers an important contribution to the understanding of North American religion that draws our attention to the role of class for an explanation. . . . A novel approach for understanding class and religion without explaining away the religion or the participants' involvement. For these reasons, scholars of Penecostalism ought to read Divine Hierachies with openness to incorporating an element of class in their analysis."
"Historians will benefit from McCloud's demolition of older lines of scholarship and from his carefully delimited and culturally perceptive theories of class analysis."
