In this intentionally grounded and richly theological volume, the editors bring together diverse leaders from pulpit and academy alike to explore the opportunities for ministry in an Asian North American Christian community that is increasingly challenged by a generation gap, not so much between age groups but between first-generation immigrants and the second- and third-generations. Contributors include Peter Cha, John Chung, Mitchell Kim, Sam Kim, David Lee, Grace May, Nancy Sugikawa, Gideon Tsang, Tim Seng, Jonathan Wu, Greg Yee, and Peter Yi.
