Liberation and Reconciliation

A bridge of healing across historic divisions— In this bracing work, theologian Meehyun Chung plots the emergence, development and special issues of Korean feminist theology against the complex historical and religious context of her nation. With a strong moral voice grounded in biblical, religious and cultural analysis, she demonstrates the pertinence of feminist contextual theological insights to the decades-long divisions in Korea but also to a critical understanding of power, spirituality and social justice in the whole oikoumene.
