Liberation and Reconciliation

Feminist Theology's Relevance for Korea

By Meehyun Chung

In this bracing work, meant as a bridge of healing across historic divisions, theologian Meehyun Chung plots the emergence, development, and special issues of Korean feminist theology against the complex historical and religious context of South Korea. With a strong moral voice grounded in biblical, religious, and cultural analysis, Chung demonstrates the pertinence of feminist contextual theological insights to the decades-long divisions in South Korea, but also to a critical understanding of power, spirituality, and social justice in the whole oikoumene. *** Korean feminist theology comes alive in these pages. - WATER (Women's Alliance for Theology, Ethics, and Ritual), June 2015 (Series: Visions & Voices) [Subject: Sociology, South Korean Studies, Women's Studies, Feminist Studies, Religious Studies, Cultural Studies, Human Rights]
