Review "Well-written and informative, this book is an incredibly in-depth, sensitive look into the worlds of Filipino lives, families, and religious practices. Using multiple sources of data, Cherry puts Filipino religious lives in context, helping us get up-close views that bring social patterns to life."

(Michael O. Emerson Rice University 2013-02-22)

"Cherry's book captures the heartbeat of the Filipino immigrant community in America by its focus on how religion and family impact American civic life and the future of American Catholicism."
(Helen Rose Ebaugh author of Religion and the New Immigrants 2013-08-14)
