Summary
Robinson uses sociological principles to examine the impact of community religiosity on county lethal violence rates. Testing both an integrated model and disaggregated models of lethal violence he finds evidence that religious homogeneity is a better predictor of lethal violence than either the rates of religious participation or the prevalence of religious institutions within a county. Moreover, he finds evidence that the presence of different conservative Christian denominations impact community violence in different ways. Specifically, the prevalence of Pentecostal, fundamentalist and evangelical Protestants in counties have different effects on suicide and homicide rates and should be examined independently. --Provided by publisher
