We are excited to announce that the presentations from our 2021 conference “Lived Theology in Asian America: Race, Justice, and Politics in Transpacific Context” have been published in the January 2023 issue of Theology Today. The peer-reviewed articles center the experiences of Asian American Christian communities. Through history, sociology, and ethnography, the articles examine how Asian American Christians creatively engage race, justice, and politics from their transpacific context. Many thanks to the authors, Melissa Borja, Jane Hong, Jerry Park, Easten Law, Gillian Chu, Geomon George, and Jonathan Tran for their important contributions, and to Gordon Mikoski, the editor of Theology Today, for his willingness to publish these articles.
