The world’s leading Christian thinkers explain some of the principal tenets of their theological beliefs.
As an Asian American female theologian, Grace Ji-Sun Kim knows first-hand the importance of retrieving and disseminating into mainstream discourse the words, symbols and concepts of marginalised experience. In Spirit Life she explains that the Asian concept of Chi is similar to the Christian notion of the Holy Spirit – a liberating way of recognising the presence of God within the world and within us.
Following an introduction to her social location as an immigrant woman living in a White Nationalist context, Kim shows how a deeper understanding of the Chi-Spirit correlation can be helpful to Asians and the Asian diaspora.
Grace Ji-Sun Kim is a Korean American theologian and Professor of Theology at Earlham School of Religion.
