520 |aAnnotation|bBased on studies of two congregations in New York (the Chinese Community Church and the Korean Presbyterian Church), this analysis examines issues of racial formation, religious belief, and ethnic identity. The educational and economic values of the church members and the role their religious beliefs play in their gender and family values are also discussed. To carry out his research, Alumkal (sociology of religion, Iliff School of Theology, Denver, Colorado) attended weekly services at the two churches for over a year in the mid-1990s, when he also interviewed around 50 church members.

520 |aAnnotation|bAlumkal examines the beliefs and life experiences of American-born/raised Asian American evangelicals in two congregations, one Chinese American and one Korean American, near New York City. He documents how the culture of American evangelicalism has shaped the worldviews of its second-generation Asian American adherents. The religious beliefs of the individuals in this study were indistinguishable from those of most white evangelicals. These individuals also affirmed the view that Christian identity transcends racial/ethnic lines. Yet, paradoxically, they testified to the significance of race and ethnicity in their lives and saw their churches as places to strengthen ethnic ties. In conclusion, scholars need new theoretical approaches for understanding the post-1965 immigrants and their offspring.
