Product description

Review

"Paul Tokunaga has hit a grand slam.All throughout this book I found myself repeatedly saying, 'That's me. . . . That's exactly how I feel. . . . That's exactly how I am.' Paul has captured the pulse of the Asian American leader: competent, highly skilled and gifted, with tremendous potential and possibility yet in need of encouragement, mentoring and hope. Paul provides for us the possibility of being ourselves and being effective leaders."--Soong-Chan Rah, Milton B. Engebretson Assistant Professor of Church Growth and Evangelism, North Park Theological Seminary

"In writing this book, Paul Tokunaga has provided a compelling and comprehensive training resource for Asian American Christian leaders. Using his Japanese/Southern wit, his keen eye for observing Asian American cultural tendencies and his own journey as an outstanding leader in many different and challenging settings, he has found ways to coax more of us also to step forward and contribute in ways that affirm who we are and that will bless countless others."--Rev. Dr. Ken Uyeda Fong, Senior Pastor, Evergreen Baptist Church of Los Angeles

"With insights from the Bible, Asian American experiences and his own personal journey, Paul Tokunaga has produced a work that will serve as an invaluable resource for Asian American leaders as well as for those who serve alongside them. The Asian American and the wider Christian community have needed a book like this for a long time."--Peter Cha, Assistant Professor in Pastoral Theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"Weaving personal reflections with practical guidance, Paul Tokunaga provides up-and-coming Asian American leaders with invaluable insights on how to reach their full potential. This book offers candor and wisdom from an experienced ministry leader who shares both the ups and the downs of his own leadership journey. Read this book and accept his invitation!"--Helen Lee, co-founder, Best Christian Workplaces Institute, former publisher, re: generation quarterly

"This book provides wonderful insight and commentary about the intersection between Asian American leadership issues and cultural values within the context of Christianity and mainstream society."--J. D. Hokoyama, President and CEO, Leadership Education for Asian Pacifics, Inc. (LEAP)

"Paul Tokunaga challenges us to be a part of what God is doing.Invitation to Lead is a clarion call to rise above our fears, cultural tradtions and stereotypes and lead! Tokunaga passionately encourages us to lead in a new global village that welcomes Asian Americans to the table of servant leadership."--David Gibbons, Social Entrepreneur, Lead Pastor, NewSong Church, Irvine, California

"Paul Tokunaga has hit a grand slam. All throughout this book I found myself repeatedly saying, 'That's me. . . . That's exactly how I feel. . . . That's exactly how I am.' Paul has captured the pulse of the Asian American leader: competent, highly skilled and gifted, with tremendous potential and possibility yet in need of encouragement, mentoring and hope. Paul provides for us the possibility of being ourselves and being effective leaders."--Soong-Chan Rah, Milton B. Engebretson Assistant Professor of Church Growth and Evangelism, North Park Theological Seminary

Tokunga's book is very informative, biblically sound, and even inspiring.--Step by Step blog, October 14, 2007
