Postmodern Pastoral Care and Counseling for Never-Married Single Women
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Too often single women in Korean churches are marginalized by a theology that promotes marriage and family as keys to happiness. This book weaves empirical data, narrative theory, and personal experience to liberate single women from the patriarchal norms of Korean and Korean-American congregations. A practical guide to empowering single women toward more faithful and life-giving roles in the church. A significant contribution to feminist practical theology for Korean and Korean-American congregations."

"Redeeming Singleness offers a critical counter-narrative to the dominant patriarchy which undermines the full humanity of never-married single women. Being 'good' women is more than looking 'pretty' and having to serve their families--a powerful message that calls for empowerment of women and for transformation of the church to embrace all people with divine hospitality, justice, and love. Whether married or not, I want my daughter to be a person of her own right and authority!"
--K. Samuel Lee, PhD, Claremont School of Theology
