Although Asian Americans are the highest income and best educated racial group in the United States, they have a unique set of issues and challenges which are rooted in shame-based culture, Confucianism and their bicultural identity. This book considers how Jesus transformed people in the shame-based Mediterranean culture, and then applies this understanding of the gospel to Asian Americans. As the book examines different issues and growth areas (performance orientation, self-worth, emotional development, identity and healing wounds from the past), the author shares about his spiritual journey to provide deeper insight. Readers will gain a greater understanding of how the gospel applies to Asian Americans, and be encouraged to grow and be transformed.
“Phenomenal and freeing… Ron has written a book that Asian Americans (and those who minister to them) will find both liberating and filled with hope.”
