Engaging Politics in Myanmar

A Study of Aung San Suu Kyi and Martin Luther King Jr in Light of Walter Wink's Political Theology
  • By Aung Htoo

Product Description

Violence is not just physical; like everything in life, it bears spiritual implications. Thus, nonviolence offers more than just a method for resisting oppression. It offers a spiritual revolution - a way of seeking life to cultivate the reality of God's kingdom in a world where the myth of redemptive violence is rampant.

In this book, Dr Aung Htoo places Walter Wink's political theology in conversation with both Aung San Suu Kyi and the work of Martin Luther King Jr. Locating this dialogue against the political backdrop of Myanmar's history, Htoo explores the theological and political implications of nonviolence in the cultural context of the country's people groups. He draws on the shared Buddhist and Christian foundation of commitment to loving kindness to suggest a new political reality for Myanmar - one in which its citizens work together for the transformation of their shared homeland. Ultimately, Htoo challenges Christians to dethrone the spirit of domination and bear witness to the holistic gospel in every aspect of their lives. This is an excellent resource for anyone interested in theology, peace studies, or the intersection between faith and politics.
