Recent immigrant Christians from India are changing the face of American Christianity. They are establishing churches with Orthodox, Protestant, and Catholic rites. This book is the first comprehensive study of these Christians, their churches, and their adaptation. Professor Williams describes migration patterns since 1965, and how the role of Indian Christian nurses in creating immigration opportunities for their families affects gender relations, transition of generations, interpretations of migration, Indian Christian family values, and types of leadership. Contemporary mobility and rapid communication create new transnational religious groups, and Williams reveals some of the reverse effects on churches and institutions in India. He notes some successes and failures of mediating institutions in the United States in responding to new forms of Christianity brought by immigrants. Contents Introduction; 1. Road to America; 2. Christian stories about India; 3. Becoming what you are: St Thomas Christians from Kerala; 4. Becoming what you are: Catholics and Protestants from India; 5. Wilderness, exile or promised land: experience and interpretations of migration; 6. Going home: bridges to India; 7. Adding rooms to the house; Conclusion: immigration and the many faces of Christ; Notes; Bibliography; Index. Printed Pages: 315 with 2 maps.
