Abstract

This examination of the development of Asian American theologies in North America includes the immigrant experience of Asians from the mid-nineteenth century until the present, the nature of Asian American Christianity, and the themes that appear across traditions and denominations. Tan highlights the contributions of key Asian American theologians and scripture scholars and describes the more distinctive theologies that have developed among the diverse groups of Asian Americans, including Catholics, mainline Protestants, Evangelicals, and Pentecostals. A challenging final chapter presents four areas in which Asian American theologians can work together in the future.
