This anthology is written from a variety of ethnic, national, and cultural perspectives of Asian ancestry (residing in Canada and the United States) including Chinese American, Filipino American, Japanese American, Korean American, and Vietnamese American, and of European American partners and pastors in Asian American contexts. The fourteen essays represent diverse theological views on themes ranging over historical/cultural issues, theological interpretations, local church experience, visions of hope and longing, faith practices, and the effects of globalization. Although the voices are varied, they all echo a yearning both to value the distinctness of each identity and, at the same time, to "get along" with one another and to create a different and more caring way of relating as a whole society. Contributors include: Eleazar S. Fernandez, Young Lee Hertig, Deborah Lee, Sang Hyun Lee, Fumitaka Matsuoka, Greer Anne Wenh-In Ng, Andrew Sung Park, Peter C. Phan, Lester Edwin J. Ruiz, Roy I. Sano, M. Thomas Thangaraj, Sharon G. Thornton, Timothy Tseng, and Randi Jones Walker.
