Their lives and stories come together with an unexpected twist in this action-packed modern fable. American Born Chinese is an amazing ride, all the way up to the astonishing climax.

Completing the Face of the Chinese Church in America

This book attempts to spell out a biblical perspective on the cultural differences between OBCs and ABCs as part of an appeal to them to learn more about each other's ways of thinking, values and styles of ministry.

A recurring problem in Chinese churches is the conflict that commonly arises between OBC (overseas-born Chinese) and ABC (American-Born Chinese) leaders. 90% of the Chinese churches in the U.S. have been established in recent years to minister to the needs of OBCs. As long as there are new Chinese immigrants arriving, there will be a need for Chinese churches, and conflicts between OBCs and ABCs will arise. Chinese churches must minister to the whole family, adults and children. When the ABCs are neglected, they will drop out of the churches, leaving only their parents to worship there. The Chinese who value very highly the unity of the family will find their own families divided. The wave of English services for the ABCs in parallel to traditional Chinese services for the OBCs at first were seen as divisive, but now are a recognized first step to correct the situation. Besides, half of the American-Chinese population are ABCs, few of whom are reached for Jesus Christ, requiring the nurturing of strong ABC ministries and churches. Even among the ABCs themselves there is a large difference in their acculturation rate into the American culture so that what is suitable for first generation ABCs may not work for third generation ABCs. This book attempts to spell out a biblical perspective on the cultural differences between OBCs and ABCs as part of an appeal to them to learn more about each other's ways of thinking, values and styles of ministry. The primary focus of the book, however, is to help both OBC and ABC leaders find ways as equal partners to improve the effectiveness of their ministries to ABCs within the Chinese churches. The need for a viable ministry to ABCs is urgent for two reasons: 1) even if the immigrant flow were to be curtailed, Chinese churches would still be needed for many decades after several generations have been born in America in order to serve immigrants with strong Chinese cultural family values. 2) ABC ministries are best poised to help ABCs resist going the way of the world once assimilated in American culture and to reach out to the unchurched Chinese in America.

China, 1898. An unwanted fourth daughter, Four-Girl isn't even given a proper name by her family. She finds friendship-and a name, Vibiana-in the most unlikely of places: Christianity. But China is a dangerous place for Christians. The Boxer Rebellion is murdering Westerners and Chinese Christians alike. Torn between her nation and her Christian friends, Vibiana will have to decide where her true loyalties lie . . . and whether she is willing to die for her faith. ---- Boxers & Saints is a groundbreaking graphic novel in two volumes. This innovative format presents two parallel tales about young people caught up on opposite sides of a violent rift. Saints tells Vibiana's story, and the companion volume, Boxers, tells the story of Little Bao, a young man who joins the Boxer Rebellion. American Born Chinese author Gene Luen Yang brings his trademark magical realism to the complexities of the Boxer Rebellion, and lays bare the universal foundations of extremism, rebellion, and faith.

Asian Americans are a growing, minority population in the United States. After a 46 percent population growth between 2000 and 2010 according to the 2010 Census, there are 17.3 million Asian Americans today. Yet Asian Americans as a category are a diverse set of peoples from over 30 distinctive Asian-origin subgroups that defy simplistic descriptions or generalizations. They face a wide range of issues and problems within the larger American social universe despite the persistence of common stereotypes that label them as a “model minority” for the generalized attributes offered uncritically in many media depictions. Asian American Society: An Encyclopedia provides a thorough introduction to the wide–ranging and fast–developing field of Asian American studies. Published with the Association for Asian American Studies (AAAS), two volumes of the four-volume encyclopedia feature more than 300 A-to-Z articles authored by AAAS members and experts in the field who examine the social, cultural, psychological, economic, and political dimensions of the Asian American experience. The next two volumes of this work contain approximately 200 annotated primary documents, organized chronologically, that detail the impact American society has had on reshaping Asian American identities and social structures over time. Features: More than 300 articles authored by experts in the field, organized in A-to-Z format, help students understand Asian American influences on American life, as well as the impact of American society on reshaping Asian American identities and social structures over time. A core collection of primary documents and key demographic and social science data provide historical context and key information. A Reader's Guide groups related entries by broad topic areas and themes; a Glossary defines key terms; and a Resource Guide provides lists of books, academic journals, websites and cross references. The multimedia digital edition is enhanced with 75 video clips and features strong search-and-browse capabilities through the electronic Reader’s Guide, detailed index, and cross references. Available in both print and online formats, this collection of essays is a must-have resource for general and research libraries, Asian American/ethnic studies libraries, and social science libraries.
