From the Inside Flap:

How does the experience of being an immigrant, an ethnic minority person on the margins of society, affect one?s way of doing theology? In Journeys at the Margin prominent Asian-American theologians reflect on how being an Asian and a North American has shaped the way they understand the Christian story. Asian Americans, having roots in Asia, do not fully belong either to America or Asia. They find themselves straddling two different world cultures, sharing something of both but belonging entirely to neither. Thus, their marginality can best be understood in terms of their experience of living "in-between" two cultures, that of the immigrant and that of the dominant group, and being "in-both" of these cultures?and, ultimately, being "in-beyond" the two cultures altogether. Coming from different parts of the Far East and nourished by diverse Christian traditions, the contributors to Journeys at the Margin bring to their work richly divergent perspectives, resources, and methods. More than an anthology of personal stories, this collection of essays develops the emerging theological themes (including the contributors' visions of a new America) out of their experience. What binds these highly varied essays is their authors' common journeys at the margin. As the United States becomes increasingly multiethnic and multicultural at the threshold of a new millennium, Journeys at the Margin offers useful suggestions on how to meet the challenge of cultural diversity in both Church and society. Articles and their contributors are ?An Asian American Theology: Believing and Thinking at the Boundaries,? by Peter C. Phan; ?Five Stages Toward Christian Theology in the Multicultural World,? by Choan Seng Song; ?A Life In Between: A Korean American Journey,? by Jung Young Lee; ?The House of Self,? by Julia Ching; ?A Japanese American Pilgrimage: Theological Reflections,? by Paul M. Nagano; ?A Path of Concentric Circles: Toward an Autobiographical Theology of Community,? by David Ng; ??But Who Do You Say That I Am?? (Matt 16:15): A Churched Korean American Woman?s Autobiographical Inquiry,? by Jung Ha Kim; ?Betwixt and Between: Doing Theology with Memory and Imagination,? by Peter C. Phan; ?From Autobiography to Fellowship of Others: Reflections on Doing Ethnic Theology Today,? by Anselm Kyongsuk Min; and ?Church and Theology: My Theological Journey,? by Andrew Sung Park.
