In this podcast, we have a conversation with Kathryn Gin Lum about her new book, “Heathen: Religion and Race in American History.” The book argues how the religious idea of the heathen undergirds American conceptions of race. While the term “heathen” fell out of common use by the early 1900s, the term’s influence on racial categories persists today.

The Center for Asian American Christianity at Princeton Theological Seminary is advancing the scholarly study of Asian American Christianity, developing a forward-looking vision for Asian American theology, and equipping and empowering Asian American Christians for faithful gospel ministry and public witness.
