Faithful Generations

Lucid analysis of how beliefs, expectations and experience differ from one generation to the next - Clear-cut, practical and specific advice about how to use that analysis to facilitate communication, congregational harmony and spiritual direction - Intended for anyone in ministry who wants to be a more effective minister to "other" generations, including pastors, chaplains and spiritual directors Faithful Generations provides a hopeful and helpful guide to the different adult generations alive today, discussing the events that formed them and the issues important to them. Most importantly, it describes their spiritual distinctions-the particular needs, gifts and concerns that drive these different generations. With a basic understanding of how other generations think and what drives them spiritually, ministers and congregations can not only avoid conflict, but also put those distinctions to work in order to minister more effectively and create harmony in our religious communities.

This book explores the ways through which Korean American men demonstrate and navigate their manhood within a US context that has historically sorted them into several limiting, often emasculating, stereotypes. In the US, Korean men tend to be viewed as passive, non-athletic, and asexual (or hypersexual). They are often burdened with very specific expectations that run counter to traditional tropes of US masculinity. According to the normative script of masculinity, a “man” is rugged, individualistic, and powerful—the antithesis of

Forty Years Later: God’s Faithfulness Across Generations looks at the stories of biblical characters and, more importantly, at their wilderness journeys as they struggled and grew in faith. God has a
