Chang Seop Kang, Conversion of Chinese Students in Korea To Evangelical Christianity: Factors, Process, and Types


  • J. Nelson Jennings Global Missiology - English


This study by Chang Seop Kang stands out for two reasons. First is the clearly focused subject matter: characteristics of conversions to evangelical Christianity of Chinese students in South Korea. Second is the research method used, namely that of grounded theory. This field-centric, qualitative, and inductive approach freed Kang from limiting his research results to comparisons with any preconceived notion or thesis about how or why the conversions occurred. Everyone exposed to this book should gain a deeper appreciation for the significance within the Christian movement of the worldwide Chinese diaspora.
