Summary "South Korea is home to one of the most vibrant evangelical Protestant communities in the world. This book investigates the meanings of - and the reasons behind - an intriguing aspect of contemporary South Korean evangelicalism: the intense involvement of middle-class women. Drawing upon extensive ethnographic fieldwork in Seoul that explores the relevance of gender and women's experiences to Korean evangelicalism, Kelly H. Chong not only helps provide a clearer picture of the evangelical movement's success in South Korea, but interrogates the global question of contemporary women's attraction to religious traditionalisms."--BOOK JACKET.
