Introducing Immigrant Faith
This book examines the religion of immigrants living in the West from a life-course perspective, from the point of migration and the migratory journey itself through the religious lives of immigrant children in their adult years. Drawing on a number of data sources, the book explores general patterns of immigrant religion in Canada, Western Europe, and the United States. It considers the influence of religion in the decisions and destinations of international migrants and among second-generation immigrants, the extent to which religion helps or hinders immigrants, and whether immigrant faith is really transferred to the next generation. Several vignettes are presented to illustrate the book's main points.
