West Indian Pentecostals

Full Product Description

This is the first in-depth study to explore the cultural context of the religious experience of West Indian immigrant communities. Whereas most studies to date have focussed on how immigrants settle in their new home contexts, Janice A. McLean-Farrell argues for a more comprehensive perspective that takes into account the importance of religion and the role of both 'home' and the 'host' contexts in shaping immigrant lives in the Diaspora. West Indian Pentecostals: Living Their Faith in New York and London explores how these three elements (religion, the 'home' and 'host' contexts) influence the ethnic-religious identification processes of generations of West Indian immigrants. Using case studies from the cities of New York and London, the book offers a critical cross-national comparison into the complex and indirect ways the historical, socio-economic, and political realities in Diaspora contribute to both the identification processes and the 'missional' practices of immigrants. The focus on Pentecostalism in two regions of the world offers a unique opportunity to test existing theories and concepts on the interface of religion and immigration. Janice A.
Mclean-Farrell examines how immigrants with a common heritage (West Indian) construct divergent lives in different socio-cultural contexts, and offers ground-breaking contributions to the study of Pentecostalism.
