Grace Ji-Sun Kim’s book, Embracing the Other: The Transformative Spirit of Love, maps the unique and distinctive historical markers that have othered the broader Asian community, with special attention to women, who by virtue of their sex have been deemed foreigners, both within the larger Christian tradition and in U.S. society. She examines how the academic discipline of theology, and the Christian tradition, have done a disservice to marginalized peoples as they both maintain power structures which have resulted in the oppression of the foreigner, that is, the “Other” (120).
