Taiwanese in America

I found an intriguing book review on the Global China Center website about Taiwanese immigrants in America. I hope to order the book, but the article alone is very helpful in identifying and explaining a phenomenon which missionaries here in Taiwan have long recognized: Taiwanese are much easier to reach with the gospel when outside of their own culture. You can read this book review here. If you are working with Chinese Christians in America you should read this article and maybe—like me—you should order the book too.

The book is called Getting Saved in America: Taiwanese Immigration and Religious Experience by Cathy Chen. Be aware that although it deals with evangelical Christianity, it appears that the book is written from a secular, sociological viewpoint.
