Filipino American Faith in Action

Full Product Description

Filipinos are now the second largest Asian American immigrant group in the United States. In fact, there are more Filipino Americans than Japanese Americans and Korean Americans combined. Surprisingly, there is little published on Filipino Americans and their spirituality, or the ways in which their religious traditions may influence the broader culture in which they are becoming established."Filipino American Faith in Action" draws on interviews, survey data, and participant observation to shed light on this large immigrant community. It explores Filipino American religious institutions as essential locations for empowerment and civic engagement, illuminating how Filipino spiritual experiences can offer a lens for viewing this migrant community's social, political, economic, and cultural integration into American life. Joaquin Jay Gonzalez III examines Filipino American church involvement and religious practices in the San Francisco Bay Area and in the Philippines, showing how Filipino Americans maintain community and ethnic and religious networks, contra assimilation theory, and how they go about sharing their traditions with the larger society.

Filipino American Faith in Action by Joaquin Jay Gonzalez was published by New York University Press in February 2009. The ISBN for Filipino American Faith in Action is 9780814731970.
