I endorsed a new book, Not Forgotten by Kenneth Bae.
Rev. Jesse Jackson and I worked on Kenneth Bae’s release efforts from a North Korean prison. We met with the North Korean Ambassador to the UN, wrote numerous articles and 11 letters to the North Korean government.

Read Bae’s new book to find out more.
I wrote a chapter “Land, Exile and the Spirit of God: Rebuilding Selves in a Globalized World” in a new book, Always Being Reformed edited by David H. Jensen.
This book emerged from the Inaugural Clarence N. and Betty B. Frierson Distinguished Scholars’ Conference at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary held in April 2014. So honored to be invited to attend the conference and be part of this book project. Many thanks to Dean Jensen.
