One year flew by since the publication of my book, Invisible which was released Nov 9, 2021. Below is a repost of my original Substack post. Please follow me on Substack.
It has been a whirlwind year giving talks on my book, Invisible at many seminaries, churches, conferences, events and podcasts. I am grateful for each invitation to speak and for each reviewers’ reflection of Invisible.
Invisible is my most personal book and I hope you all get a chance to read it. You can listen to a book discussion on Homebrewed Christianity with Dr. Tripp Fuller as I share about a Theology of Visibility.
I also had a great discussion of my book Invisible with ESR’s professor emeritus Dr. Nancy Bowen.
Joy Clarisse Saavedra who is a graduate student at Asbury Theological Seminary wrote a lovely review for AAR’s Reading Religion. Saavedra writes, “Re-orienting the practice of theology, as Kim urges, towards the margins is crucial for visibility, and Kim’s practical suggestions for incorporating Asian American terms encourage readers in their next steps. Invisible: Theology and the Experience of Asian American Women is valuable for those who want to begin understanding and responding to the experiences of Asian American people, especially Asian American women, in the practice of Christian theology.” (read the entire review here)
Simeiqi He reviewed Invisible for US Catholic Magazine. He writes, “Yet, this book is not only for Asian Americans. Through the act of writing about their invisibility, Kim cultivates an “intimate public”—a concept coined by Lauren Berlant in The Female Complaint (Duke University Press) to describe a particular women’s culture in the United States. Kim is telling the story not only of Asian American women in the United States but of a broader world.” (Read the entire review here).
