(p.1) Introduction
Preserving Ethnicity through Religion in America

Pyong Gap Min

NYU Press

This introductory chapter sets out the book's two main objectives. The first is to examine the different ways that Indian Hindu and Korean Protestant immigrants in New York preserve their ethnicity through religion. The second is to examine the theological differences between evangelical Protestantism and Hinduism that have affected the intergenerational transmissions of religion and ethnic traditions through religion. The book demonstrates the limitations of the traditional literature on religion and ethnicity based on the earlier white ethnic groups; looks at the importance of the theological difference between Korean evangelical Protestantism and Indian Hinduism in their transmission of religion and ethnicity through religion; and contributes to the literature on the intergenerational transmission of religion and ethnicity through religion for the post-1965 immigrant groups.
