How we think about God is deeply personal. It shapes who we are and how we see the world. The fifteen pocket-sized editions in the My Theology series feature prominent thinkers and scholars reflecting on the meaning of God in their lives and how they practice their faith.
Grace Ji-Sun Kim (Author)As an Asian-American theologian existing in multiple cultural spheres, Grace Ji-Sun Kim works to disseminate Asian words and religious symbols into mainstream discourse so that we can move toward a nondualistic theology that provides space for the marginalized and the subordinated, paving a path toward liberation and radical demarginalization.
Spirit Life centers on the Spirit as an avenue for better understanding God and reconciling with our faith. The Spirit is present in the Old Testament as ruach and in the New Testament as pneuma. When the field of theology was prominently German-led, theologians used the word geist to talk about the spirit. As an Asian-American theologian existing in the liminality between multiple cultural spheres, Kim finds it necessary to retrieve and disseminate Asian words and religious symbols into the mainstream discourse to revolutionize the accessibility and global understanding of God today. One important Asian concept is chi, translated as wind, breath, spirit, energy, much like ruach, pneuma, and geist. Chi is a fitting term for coming to know God as the Spirit as it effectively conveys God’s presence in the world. As such, we can move toward a nondualistic theology that provides an abundant space for everyone, including the marginalized and the subordinated, paving a path toward liberation and radical demarginalization.
