Reviews

"For over half a century now, Asian theologians have been struggling with ploughing Asian soil and planting theology in the Asian context. It has proven to be a task not easily said or done. Shoki Coe issued the prophetic call; there is no turning back for any theologians who are serious about God's revelation in the here and now. The authors of this book have demonstrated their continuous commitment to Coe's call in response to our immediate contexts-the challenging resurgence of extremisms, bigotry, and ethnic, religious, and sexual discrimination." --Angela Wai Ching Wong, Executive Vice President of United Board of Christian Higher Education, Hong Kong

"What a pleasure to read this wonderful tribute to Shoki Coe, a true and faithful innovator who theologians of every faith continue to benefit from. I am profoundly grateful to Rev. Coe and theologians like him as they were instrumental in providing tools for me to mine my own tradition and create a Jewish theology of liberation that flourishes today in the renewed engagement of Jews of Conscience with our own indigenous prophetic tradition." --Marc H. Ellis, author of Toward a Jewish Theology of Liberation and Finding Our Voice: Embodying the Prophetic and Other Misadventures

"This is a treasure chest of precious insights into the Asian reality, perceived as a divinely inspired context for Asian Christians to theologize-that is, to interpret the word revealed in the Scriptures and experienced in Christ Jesus. It is certainly not a dull, uniform work of a differently worded consensus of opinions. Rather, the various positions taken by the authors are complementary in some cases and critically corrective in others. It is a library that young theology students in Asia should consult." --Aloysius Pieris, SJ, author of An Asian Theology of Liberation
