Transferring Faith

Transferring Faith

(p.93) 4 Transferring Faith
Immigrant Faith

NYU Press

This chapter examines whether the patterns of faith and integration among first-generation immigrants are part of a broader pattern that carries through to their adult children. It considers whether immigrant faith gets transferred from the first to the second generation and whether second-generation immigrants are more or less religious than their parents' generation. It also explores how religious tendencies vary across religious groups and across different destination countries and how immigrant children encounter the same religious help, or perhaps hindrances, encountered by their parents' generation in terms of economic prosperity. The chapter cites statistical evidence suggesting that the immigrant's faith is not altogether transferred to all children of immigrants.
