about

Recent immigrant Christians from India are changing the face of American Christianity. This is the first comprehensive study of these Christians, their churches, and their adaptation. 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.

Editorial Reviews

Review of the hardback: ' ... Christian Pluralism is an impressive and wide-ranging book written by an experienced and visionary elder-statesman deeply concerned not just about Indian Christians but about the role that Indian Christians can play in shaping the future of American Christianity ... the book should be required reading for all who seek to lead Indian churches into the future.' Souvenir for the Family Conference of the Mar Thoma Church
