Product Overview

"A creative, exhilarating, inspiring, and hope-filled book for marginalized Asian Americans and other groups! Lee moves from marginality to liminality?a creative space of resistance and solidarity, possibility and openness to the new and to the communitas...An excellent book for multicultural studies!-Andrew Sung Park, Professor of Theology, United Theological Seminary, Doom, Ohio

Drawing on decades of teaching and reflection, Princeton theologian Sang lee probes what it means for Asian Americans to live as the followers of Christ in the "liminal space"; between Asia and America and at the periphery of American society. There, Lee argues, one can also sometimes discover a creative and edgy space with openness to the new, the emergence of community, and the ability to take a prophetic stance over against the status quo. For Lee, the liminal is key to the authentic calling and future of Asian Americans, other ethnic-racial groups and minorities, persons with mixed identities, and indeed all Christians.

"Lee has crafted a theological gem in this text. He has captured for many Asian Americans in his analysis of 'liminality' what W.E.B. DuBois articulated for many African Americans in his notion of 'twoness.' This book is a 'must read for anyone who is interested in how the traditional resources of Christian thought can be brought into conversation with Asian American experience."-James H. Evans Jr., Robert K. Davies Professor of Systematic Theology Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School

"Grounded in the heritage of Asian American churches, this book explores the emerging critical theological theme of liminality, which is becoming an increasingly common experience among Christians in this globalized world. This book is a timely and groundbreaking contribution to the contemporary theological scene."-Fumitaka Matsuoka, Robert Gordon Sproul Professor of Theology Emeritus, Pacific School of Religion, Berkeley California
