    China is an example of a culture that in general has a deep respect for ancestors. Korea is an example of a culture that engages in ancestor worship where ancestors are revered. But genealogy (the study of one's ancestors) is growing in popularity and includes both amateur and professional genealogists. Written entirely by Korean Christians, this study analyzes the tension between ancestor worship and Christianity from several perspectives: traditional folk religion, Korean Christianity, Confucianism, and Japanese religion during the Korean occupation of Japan.
