God's New Whiz Kids? Korean American Evangelicals on Campus focuses on second-generation Korean Americans, who make up the majority of Asian American evangelicals, and explores the factors that lead college-bound Koraen American evangelicals—from integrated, mixed race neighborhoods to create racially segregated religious communities on campus. Kim illustrates an emergent "made in the USA" ethnicity to help explain this trend, and to shed light on a group that may be hcanging the face of American evangelicalism.
