Immigrant Faiths: Transforming Religious Life in America

Leonard, Karen I.


Recent immigration is changing American religion. The United States is increasingly home to religious traditions from Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America. While American religious traditions and institutions often shape the beliefs and practices of new immigrants, immigrants are also creating their own unique religious communities within existing denominations or developing hybrid identities that combine strands of several faiths or traditions. This volume, co-edited by SSRC Associate Director Jennifer Holdaway, calls on new and established scholars from a wide range of disciplines to provide a needed overview to this expanding subfield.
