A Korean theologian approaches the issue of racial conflict-including discrimination between minority communities-and constructs a "theology of seeing" that aims to heal the ruptures of racism. As ethnic tensions continue to simmer and occasionally erupt, immigration and affirmative action laws are hotly debated in every ethnic minority: African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans-even Asian Americans (the so-called "model minority") struggle in the racially-charged atmosphere of contemporary America. In the aftermath of the Los Angeles riots of 1992 and the ensuing violence against Korean Americans, Andrew Sung Park seeks a theological model that will help transform a society of oppression, injustice, and violence into a community of equity, fairness, and mutual consideration. Park emphasizes that such a transformation does not and cannot begin only with good intentions, but must be grounded in an understanding of all the socio-economic and cultural issues that lead to oppression and tension. Using the Korean term han to describe the deep-seated suffering of racial oppression, he then suggests resources for understanding and healing in both Christian and Asian traditions. Part I of Racial Conflict and Healing describes the status quo from a Korean American perspective, including discrimination against ethnic minorities and the discrimination they inflict on one another. In Parts II and III, Park suggests that American society as a whole needs a superordinate vision to form a unified community. Park argues that our profoundly individualistic society must learn to understand an idea of "self" that is formed through relationship with others. Finally, in Part IV, he presents a theological model, a "theology of seeing," as a way to genuinely understand the "other" and to promote healing within our society.

In the wake of the L.A. Riots of 1992, Andrew Sung Park, Korean American theologian, wrestles through the overt realities of sin and brokenness. As a spokesperson for the Christian Korean American community, Park unveils (1) the han (the dross of being sinned against) of and the han caused by Korean Americans; (2) biblical societal visions; (3) unique sociological methodologies through hahn (divineness), jung (affections), and mut (creative beauty); and (4) a theology of seeing as the Korean American balm for community. Utilizing a 'beauty from ashes' metaphor, Park advocates a deep, reflective, compassionate, and holistic theology of seeing to absolve and restore broken relationships in a han-ridden world. The four ways of seeing are hermeneutics of questioning the han (vision-seeing), hermeneutics of construction with hahn (intellectual-seeing), hermeneutics of affection through jung (spiritual-seeing), and hermeneutics of celebration with mut (soul-seeing). These four simultaneous avenues of seeing the self, others, the world, and God unleash the gracious healing balm.
