About this product
- DescriptionThe rethinking of Christianity has a long tradition in Asia. This volume explores current theological trends and shifts in the perception of Christianity, mainly in China, Japan and Korea. The contributions come from east and west alike and address the question of the emergent shape of Christianity in the light of the experience of marginality and the search for identity. The theologies that play on the streets (for example Korean folklore and the Minjung Congregation Movement, the Buraku of Japan, the Confucian Christ in China and its so-called Culture Christians) are represented as well as programmatic theological discourses struggling with globalization and hegemonic images of Christ. Some of the contributors such as Kim Yong-Bock and R.S. Sugirtharajah are themselves exponents of new ways of Christian thought.
