Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an overview of the book, which explores the dynamics of an intercultural theology of migration as illustrated in the theological possibilities, relevance, and challenges of the struggle of the Filipina domestic workers in Hong Kong. The life of the Filipina domestic workers or DHs in H.K. is a constant (re)negotiation of the gamut of problematic situations they go through, as Filipino women working as domestic workers in H.K. Religion plays a central and double-edged role in this everyday struggle. Accordingly the book also endeavors to explore how or to what extent this theology might help the Theology of Struggle in the Philippines move forward given the fact that the context of the Filipina domestic workers in Hong Kong significantly differs from the Philippine context.
