How Immigrants are Renewing America's Faith and Values
Faith in America is experiencing a powerful religious revival – particularly among Hispanic immigrants, offering an exciting opportunity for spiritual renewal.

We often assume America needs to help immigrants, but in The New Pilgrims Joseph Castleberry opens our eyes to how the opposite is true—and how we can join in one of the greatest spiritual movements this country has ever seen.

In the midst of an apparent religious decline in the United States, many Americans are looking for solutions to this dilemma. Our hope lies with Christian immigrants, who bring to our churches powerful testimonies of faith from cultures all over the world. As the “new pilgrims” settle into their lives here, they are taking the American church by storm and helping rebuild America’s conservative foundations. 

It’s time to acknowledge this exciting time of spiritual renewal and embrace the political and relational choices that will once again establish America as the “shining city on a hill” we all want it to be.

Cassandra's Review-  I enjoyed spending time with this book. I was able to learn a lot from this author.  I recommend this book for older adults, simply because the topic may not be a huge hit with the younger crowd. 

Dr. Joseph Castleberry is President of Northwest University. He holds a Master of Divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Education degree in International Educational Development from Columbia University. After 20 years of missionary service in Latin America, he spent three years as a university professor and pastor in El Salvador, Central America. Later he became Associate Dean for Latin America at Global University in Texas, followed by several years as a pastor, seminary dean, and community development leader in Ecuador. Dr. Castleberry and his wife of 30 years, Kathleen, live in Kirkland, Washington.
