Kathy Khang is a clear and compelling communicator.  Her writing and unique voice help stir up discussion around various issues in society.  And her speaking is genuine—she speaks from her life, and brings her whole self.  I’ve deeply appreciated her insight, her cultural critique, and her provocative questions. Kathy is a fantastic speaker who engages audiences with her insight, and moves them with her words.

Kathy is a passionate and prophetic speaker, often challenging us — both with truth-telling and vulnerable story-telling — to keep our eyes and hearts wide open to the things we neatly want to tuck away. Listen, and get ready to see things in a new way.
James Choung, author of True Story and Real Life
Kathy Khang delivers her message with a beautiful combination of wit and wisdom. Her message is timely and she provokes us to deeper thought and more meaningful dialogue, while modeling what it looks like to tackle tough topics with grace. Her writing inspires and coaxes the best of us out of us, and her speaking captivates an audience and draws us in. Those who hear and read and enter into conversation with Kathy are the benefactors of her insight and knowledge, and that is a very good thing, indeed.

    Enjoyed reading your “Silence of Depression” article in Inheritance #27 (sorry for delayed comments; I’m a slow reader). I’m not really Asian but
    my family and church associations are. So what connected with me
    regarding this article?:

    1) Clinical Depression: Yes, I’ve been down that road too. It can
    be a very dark journey (fatal for some), and you’re right, people
    need to talk more about these things.

    2) In-laws: We cared for my mother-in-law in our home following
    her stroke. Experiences like this bring us closer to the things
    that really matter.

    3) Suffering: Extremely important to keep a biblical perspective
    on this lest we give in to despair.

    Thanks again. Keep writing.

  3. Dear Kathy,

    As you have published commentary about Rick Warren, I think you will want to reveal these objective shocking revelations about Rick Warren to your Chinese listeners and readers.


    This should be shocking to you because you would know, and it is well known that your own
    Chinese books far exceed the claim of Rick Warren who sold 32 million books:


    QUOTATIONS FROM CHAIRMAN MAO (THE LITTLE RED BOOK) Chinese, 1964, 800-900 million copies worldwide.

    THE KORAN (Q’URAN): 800 million copies sold

    XINHUA DICTIONARY: sold over 400 million copies

    CHAIRMAN MAO’S POEMS: 400 million copies

    Even the President of Publishers Weekly verifies they have no record of, no date of publication, page number…nothing substantiating Warren’s claims.

    I hope you will expose this to ALL OF CHINA, and sound the alarm so that the public and publishers who truly can make that claim, like yourself, will be exonerated!

    btw, my book exposing RIck Warren was translated by Dr. Christian Wei into Chinese and is available at not charge on our website.

    What a great recap from the reunion and of the trials and tribulations we all felt on different levels. Wish I could’ve been there to see everyone. I’ve forgotten so much, it’s always fun to hear what other people remember from our shared time (sounds a bit like prison time). Glad to see you are doing so well.
    All the best,
