Dr. Scheitle's research examines the social structure and dynamics of religion in the United States, with a focus on three specific areas. The first explores the relationship between religion and science. The second area looks are religious discrimination and victimization against congregations and individuals. A third area examines innovations in how religion is organized in the United States, especially in regards to the growth of so-called parachurch organizations.
