Synopsis: One of this book's major contributions is a comparative study of American and Korean worldview themes, leading toward a bridging of the gaps between the two cultures. Using the case of the Church of the Nazarene, it examines historical-contextual roots of both cultures and their worldviews. The book goes on to compare and contrast how the two cultures understand the concepts of space and time, self and other, relationships, and causality. The study explores the acculturation process and culminates by presenting hermeneutical tools for contextualizing the biblical concepts of holiness, conversion and ecclesiology among Korean immigrants.
