Item description for Christianity With an Asian Face: Asian American Theology in the Making by Peter C. Phan...
Overview Drawing on the twin themes of liberation and inculturation, Peter Phan explicates a new theology forged in the cauldron of the encounter between two vastly different cultures. He devotes particular attention to the meaning of Christ for Asian Americans and the emergence of new christological titles Jesus as Eldest Son and Ancestor. Phan also explores his personal roots to sketch the contours for Vietnamese American theology, an expression of faith caught between the Dragon and the Eagle.
