In this book, Nicolette D. Manglos-Weber takes a deeply personal look at the lives of a few central characters in Accra, Ghana and Chicago, Illinois, examining what religious membership means for them as Christians, transmational Ghanaians, and aspirational migrants. Their stories highlight the continuing role of religion as a portable basis of trust in the modern world, where more people live between nations.
