Kato's integrity and generous spirit, as a hybrid and interdisciplinary scholar, invites anyone who is interested in religion or religious language to a new way of being religious in this globalized and pluralistic world. Kato's work opens up new lenses for speaking of religious language and identity using the rich concept of hybridity.
I encourage anyone who is interested in thinking about multiculturalism, diaspora, Asian North America, and religious language and context to read it.
