    schema:reviewBody ""What is the role of language in ethnic churches? This new and much needed account of the Australian experience examines the issues faced by sixteen congregations, together representing different periods of Australia's migration history, as well as different languages, cultural backgrounds and Christian denominations. It brings to light a large range of experiences found in ethnic churches, and considers the impact of Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox traditions on the role of language. Special reference is made to the tensions that can occur due to language shift and cross-generational differences in language preference. The concept of 'language-religion ideology' is developed to describe the nature of the relationship between language and religion which is exhibited by a denomination with far-reaching implications for multilingual and multicultural societies."--BOOK JACKET." ;
