Summary

North America has experienced dramatic changes with the arrival of immigrants from Africa, Asia, and Latin America since the 1970s. Some of the most important and often neglected aspects of migration are religious. In this case study of Pentecostal immigrants in Canada, Wilkinson shows how global religious networks transform social relationships and religious organizations while contributing to new translocal identities.
