The Changing World of Protestant Clergy
This chapter first sketches some of the important environmental (i.e., cultural, social, religious, and organizational) changes that have transpired in American society that affect the standing of clergy in American society and why clergy may no longer exhibit the same qualities and characteristics that have been previously revealed in earlier studies of clergy. The second section reviews scholarly findings related to American Protestant clergy, seeking to place the current study within the context of previous studies related to the topic, while the third section discusses the data used as the basis for the volume’s findings. The final section outlines the content of the chapters to follow.
