About-

The Grace of Sophia reaches out to Korean North American women, including former victims of severe religious and cultural suffering in Korea and current casualties of racism, classism, and sexism in North America. By sharing her own views on racism, the patriarchal Korean society, and multifaith understandings of wisdom, author Grace Ji-Sun Kim offers strength for the journey to empowerment and hope in the search for a liberative Korean North American women's Christology.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"The Grace of Sophia is a laudable work that articulates Sophia Christology from a Korean North American woman's perspective. It is a trailblazing work. Dr. Grace Kim creatively delineates the way of healing the wound of Korean North American women through the grace of Sophia rooted in both the Bible and the Korean tradition. Well-documented with Eastern and Western resources, this book is a broad, rich, and evocative study of Sophia Christology, which speaks to Korean North American women and to all oppressed women."
--Andrew Sung Park, United Theological Seminary, Dayton Ohio

"A significant and provocative text in Asian North American theology! Using a multi-faith interpretive method, Dr. Kim breaks new ground in constructing Jesus Sophia from a bicultural Korean and North American context. Her book engages contextual theology, feminist theology, and interreligious hermeneutics, and makes a critical contribution to theological method for an increasingly religiously pluralistic North America."
--Kwok Pui-lan, Episcopal Divinity School, Cambridge, Massachusetts
