Many people look to the
1970s and 1980s to find the cause of the rapid growth of Christianity in
Korea. But to understand the real story behind the growth of the Korean
church, we need to rediscover the story of the American missionary
enterprises of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. There,
we will learn how the story of the American Christ came to Korea and
gradually became a part of the Korean peoples story. After the missions,
he is no longer the American Christ, but Jesus of Korea.
