Recent immigrants are creating their own unique religious communities within existing denominations or developing hybrid identities that combine strands of several faiths or traditions. These changes call for new thinking among both scholars of religion and scholars of migration. Immigrant Faiths responds to these changes with fresh thinking from new and established scholars from a wide range of disciplines. Covering groups from across the U.S. and a range of religious traditions, Immigrant Faiths provides a needed overview to this expanding subfield.

These studies highlight pliable and pragmatic understandings of religion, point out transnational religious networks, and emphasize religion's role in preserving immigrants' languages and cultural continuity. * Religious Studies Review, June 2010 *
...a valuable and timely collection of essays, with nuanced case studies and assessments of the flexibilities and complications of immigrant religions; it will be useful in the classroom and the library alike for scholars of religion, migration, and American studies. -- February 2007 * H-Amstdy *
