Summary: Immigration to the United States has been a major source of population growth and cultural change throughout much of America?s history. Currently, about 40 percent of the nation?s annual population growth comes from the influx of foreign-born individuals and their children. As these new voices enter America?s public conversations, they bring with them a new understanding of Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and Christianity to a society that has been marked by religious variety. Sacred Assemblies and Civic Engagement takes an in-depth look at one particular urban area?the Chicago metropolita.
