Kwon bases his examine on a survey of 114 Korean congregations, participatory remark of a Buddhist temple and a Protestant church, and in-depth interviews with 109 religious immigrants. He unearths that non-religious variables—urban heritage, academic point, and social class—have a better impression on adjustment to the host society than faith does. non secular congregations advertise participants’ social capital for adjustment, yet on the comparable spiritual participation serves as a barrier to assimilation.
