About-

With a relatively recent rapid increase in international marriages, Korea provides a fascinating case study in cross-cultural pastoral care at a time of increasing global movement and migration. This book presents a pastoral care model based on interviews with a relatively under-researched demographic of international women marriage migrants. The pastoral care model was developed by listening to the many experiences of women from Western countries who are raising their biracial children in Korea, a country which is still wrestling with the concept of multiculturalism. At a time when many pastors will find themselves with expatriates, repatriates, or international marriages in their congregation, this book presents a model for approaching pastoral care, particularly if such women are mothers.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Given the rapid pace of social and demographic change in South Korea due to its rising engagement with the world, this book is extremely timely and tackles an issue that has long been overlooked. It provides a voice for women who may be existing on the margins and offers an insightful framework for pastoral counseling and care to support immigrant women and families from a range of backgrounds, including in contexts beyond Korea.”

—Sarah A. Son, Lecturer in Korean Studies, University of Sheffield



“Multiculturalism and biracial marriages have been a noted trend in many parts of the world over the past few decades, but a more recent phenomenon in South Korea. Kim’s research provides a fascinating insight into biracial marriages in South Korea and possesses a rare trifecta of academic rigor, accessibility, and warmth. It makes for compelling reading at both societal and academic levels.”

—Andrew Prince, Director of the Centre for Asian Christianity, Brisbane School of Theology
