Editorial Reviews

Review

“In the final analysis . . . this study is a welcome contribution to the discourse of religion in modern, cosmopolitan societies, which may well come to be regarded as a standard work in its field.”
—Lars Peter Laamann, Religious Studies Review

“Yang’s contribution documents how Christianity in general and Chinese churches in particular have integrally influenced the identity formation of Chinese immigrants. Furthermore, Yang’s book suggests that Chinese evangelical Christians (as well as other recent immigrants) are the ones responsible for sustaining America’s religiosity. Scholars interested in tapping into this religious pulse will find Yang’s book not just useful but indispensable.

Yang’s Chinese Christians in America marks an important break from traditional congregational studies of Christian churches in America. He explores how religion influences and shaped the multiple identities of Chinese immigrants.”
—Michael H. Truong, Contemporary Sociology
