Chapter Summary

This chapter detects and explores divine Wisdom as embodied in the struggle of the domestic helpers (DHs) by identifying and discussing the theological challenges of their experience of struggle. The theological challenges are thematized into three clusters which are further thematized into sub-topics or sub-themes for greater clarity and coherence. The first cluster explores the backdrop of the DHs' struggle, i.e., migration, which the chapter proposes as a new locus for theological reflection. The second cluster brings in the concern of/for a gendered subject in theological reflection. The third and last cluster scrutinizes certain existing analytical category/categories of Christian theology given Hong Kong DHs' redefinitions of identity and subjectivity, which are considered as two of the most important issues in theology today.

Keywords: Christian theology; domestic helpers' struggle; Hong Kong
