Off the Menu: Asian and Asian North American Women's Religion & Theology
Brock, Rita Nakashima, Jung Ha Kim, Kwok Pui-Lan, Seung Ai Yang, eds.
Westminster John Knox Press, 2007
ISBN: 978-0-6642-3140-8


Asian American Christianity is one of the fastest-growing forms of American Christianity, and it has already proven to be one of the richest and most innovative movements in North American religion. With a deep understanding of their roots in classic Christianity as well as the diversity of Asian culture, these theological voices have contributed some of the freshest and most provocative work of recent decades. This volume brings together women who are searching for authentic Christian dialogue in a world of hybridity and changing context, and it represents one of the most significant areas of growth and vitality in contemporary Christianity.
