Overview

The region that has produced our last three presidents is ground zero of America's current culture wars. Comprising Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, and Oklahoma, it is a land of borders—where East meets West, South meets North, and Anglo America meets the cultures of Mexico and the Caribbean. Here, cultural and religious conflict has long been a way of life: Methodists, Baptists, Pentecostals and Catholics; Latinos, Blacks, and Native Americans all strive with and against each other around agendas of family, gender, race, and turf. Religion and Public Life in the Southern Crossroads examines the distinctive character of this region and shows how it is shaping the religious politics of America today.

Editorial Reviews

Journal of Church and State
One of the most delightful attributes of the book is that the authors have read each other's chapters, a rare quality in a volume of collected essays that gives this one more philosophical continuity and internal coherence than one often finds in such books. The series is intended to help readers move past the glib, poorly informed generalities of much public conversation about religion and its connections to politics and public society....It certainly achieves its laudable aims.
