Description

An innovative Asian feminist perspective on God's Spirit We live in a time of great racial strife and global conflict. How do we work toward healing, reconciliation, and justice among all people, regardless of race or gender? In Embracing the Other Grace Ji-Sun Kim demonstrates that it is possible only through God's Spirit. Working from a feminist Asian perspective, Kim develops a new constructive global pneumatology that works toward gender and racial-ethnic justice. She draws on concepts from Asian and indigenous cultures to reimagine the divine as -Spirit God- who is restoring shalom in the world. Through the power of Spirit God, Kim says, our brokenness is healed and we can truly love and embrace the Other.

Review quote

Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza
-- Harvard Divinity School
-A bold, original, and insightful challenge to prophetically confront the sins of racism and sexism through the life-giving power of the Spirit.-

Dwight N. Hopkins
-- University of Chicago
-Grace Ji-Sun Kim continues to offer us insightful and original work that makes a difference in both the church and the academy, a rare accomplishment in the scholarly world. This book shows the growing impact of her fresh voice -- prophetic, priestly, and practical.-

Namsoon Kang
-- Brite Divinity School
-In Embracing the Other Kim constructs a theology of Spirit-Chi of love to liberate, empower, and transform the Other, envisioning the postcolonial reality of human liberation, justice, and equality regardless of one's skin color, culture, religion, and power. The 'Spirit God' she adopts here is a radical affirmation of all colonized, marginalized others. This significant, must-read book offers a revitalizing Christian theology of the Spirit in and for our highly racialized and genderized world.-

Anselm K. Min
-- Claremont Graduate University
-A prolific and rising Asian American feminist theologian, Grace Ji-Sun Kim has written another exciting book from the perspective of Asian American women suffering multiple oppressions from both the white American culture and their own Asian traditions. A compelling blend of biography, sociology, anthropology, political economy, and readable liberation theology, Kim's Embracing the Other deserves a serious hearing from many.-
