Sean McCloud has taken the lead among scholars eager to reinsert class into studies of American religion. In Divine Hierarchies, he critiques the theoretical underpinnings of previous scholarship and then draws on several fields to make his case for the dynamic nature of class beyond simple socioeconomic relationships.

Placing the neglected issue of class back into the study and understanding of religion, Sean McCloud reconsiders the meaning of class in today's world. More than a status grounded in material conditions, says McCloud, class also entails relationships, identifications, boundaries, meanings, power, and our most ingrained habits of mind and body. He demonstrates that employing class as an analytical tool that cuts across variables such as creed, race, ethnicity, and gender can illuminate American religious life in unprecedented ways.

He then presents a focused cultural history of religious studies by examining how social class surfaced in twentieth-century theories of religious affiliation.
