Making Paper Cranes

Toward an Asian American Feminist Theology

Mihee Kim-Kort

136 pages

This is not your typical Asian instructional book on Asian crafting or origami. Making Paper Cranes is an attempt to describe an ever emerging life, in an emerging community within Christianity in North America, that is intentionally taking flight and impacting the world.

This theological book engages the social histories, literary texts, and narratives of Asian American women, as well as the theological projects of prominent Asian American feminist theologians. It seeks to offer another liberative theological voice. Inherent in its construction is the interconnectedness of all stories that articulate struggle, resistance, and the artistic flourishing of oppressed peoples.

Simply put, Making Paper Cranes is about Asian American mothers, daughters, sisters, and women who are imaginatively and courageously crafting their journeys together in and through their Christian faith.
