Summary Religion and community in the new urban America examines the interrelated transformation of cities and urban congregations. The authors ask how the new metropolis affects local religious communities and what role those communities play in creating the new metropolis. Through an in-depth study of fifteen Chicago congregations - Catholic parishes, Protestant churches, Jewish synagogues, Muslim mosques, and a Hindu temple, both city and suburban - this book describes congregational life and measures congregational influences on urban environments.
