Sola Scriptura in Asia

  • By Yongbom Lee
  • By Andrew R. Talbert
The echo of Luther's hammer resounds in Asia, five hundred years after the Wittenberg controversy: the cross is a flashpoint in China; Korea seeks ecclesiastical reform; the mystical union thrives in Laos; even Kant whispers in old Batavia. The diversity of ideas and influences of the Reformation is as broad and fascinating as the continent--resisting reduction to the postcolonial movement and demonstrating an affinity with Protestant foundations that somehow remains uniquely Asian. This volume brings together the reflections of Christian academics from the continent to offer a sample of the theological work that remains largely inaccessible to the broader scholarly community, with contributions in the fields of theology, biblical studies, philosophy, and Christian higher education. If the quincentennial of the Reformation has revealed anything, it is the inauguration of Asia as the locus of biblical and theological scholarship for the next five hundred years. ""Serious efforts to reflect on the Reformation heritage for biblical interpretation, Christian worldview, and education in Asia today."" --Seyoon Kim, Fuller Theological Seminary ""This wide-ranging collection of essays represent insightful and helpful reflections on the implications of the major findings of the Reformation for Christianity in varied Asian contexts. The essays are top-quality biblical, theological, philosophical studies by a diverse group of scholars. This volume will be helpful for Christian leaders throughout Asia. But as a Western Christian scholar and leader, I have found the essays incredibly helpful in thinking through issues in my own context."" --Clinton E.
