Download e-book for kindle: A Faith Of Our Own: Second-Generation Spirituality in Korean by Sharon Kim

By Sharon Kim

Second-generation Korean american citizens, demonstrating an unheard of entrepreneurial fervor, are developing new church buildings with a aim of shaping the way forward for American Christianity.

A religion of Our Own
investigates the improvement and progress of those homes of worship, a up to date and swiftly expanding phenomenon in significant towns in the course of the United States.

Immigration historians have depicted the second-generation as a transitional generation--on the regular march towards the inevitable decline of ethnic identification and allegiance. Sharon Kim indicates another direction. by way of harnessing faith and innovatively developing hybrid non secular associations, second-generation Korean american citizens are assertively defining and shaping their very own ethnic and non secular futures. instead of assimilating into mainstream American evangelical church buildings or inheriting the church buildings in their immigrant mom and dad, second-generation pastors are growing their very own hybrid 3rd space--new independent church buildings which are formed through a number of frames of reference.

Including facts accrued over ten years at twenty-two church buildings, A religion of Our Own is the main entire research of this subject that addresses generational, id, political, racial, and empowerment issues.
