Book Summary: 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 bi-culturalism, locate their spirituality, recognize their search for community and empathize with some of their common struggles.
Understanding the Coconut Generation: Ministry to the Americanized Asian Indians is a multidisciplinary study of the Indian American experience, including a brief historical review, demographical data, psycho-social analysis, anthropological and theological reflections, results of a web-based survey and many practical lessons for 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.
