Understanding the Coconut Generation: Ministry to the Americaniz


Understanding the Coconut Generation: Ministry to the Americanized Asian Indians (Paperback)

By Sam George

Coconut (brown on the outside, white on the inside) is a metaphor for the emerging generation of Asian Indians in the Western societies. This book is about helping the coming generations of Asian Indians in North America to discover their unique identity, embrace their biculturalism, identify their spirituality, recognize their search for authentic community and empathize with some of their common struggles.

Understanding the Coconut Generation is a multidisciplinary account of the Indian American experience, including brief historical review, demographical data, socio-psychological analysis, anthropological and theological reflection, results of a web based survey and many lessons for practical Christian ministry. It contains collective wisdom of many youth leaders, parents, pastors, educators, counselors and community leaders from a variety of different backgrounds from all across North America.
