The purpose of this book is to provide valuable anthropological data on the identity construction of a rapidly growing Chinese Christian population in the United States. As more and more Chinese of different generations and varying cultural backgrounds practice evangelical Christianity, the meaning of Chinese American will change accordingly. The book provides significant linguistic data for a nascent but important area of anthropological research. The scope of the book encompasses Asian American homiletics, discourse analysis and prosody, types of sermons and roles of men and women in a diverse, multilingual church. Parallels between Confucianism and Christianity and the role of "gradual evangelism" in identity construction are discussed. These elements are contextualized within current sociocultural and economic spheres and address the implications of the "model minority" and Asian patriarchy. The book provides original linguistic data of sermons in Mandarin, Cantonese and English. The book posits that the Chinese of the Boston church have developed an ethno-Christian identity and this identity demonstrated through ethnically marked prosodic cues, unites the congregation in the ethnic church. This position challenges some current approaches to identity construction and the role of religion in immigrant communities.

Introduction |My name is Ellie and I attend school at one of the finest institutions of higher learning in all the world. My story is no different from any told by young women. And I wanted to share it with you, if only for the sheer inexorable brilliance of it. And rather than beginning the way any other tale might, let me start with a query, a ponder if you will. For how do you, indeed how can you, start each and every day, in bliss?.. How do you face the day, when each and every day starts with your every higher desire being stroked, your every yearning fed, how do you then get out of bed and get on with it?
