About the Author:

JUNG MO SUNG Professor of Religion in the graduate Religious Studies program at the prestigious Methodist University of São Paulo, Brazil.

Review:

"Finally, the long-awaited collection of Professor Jung Mo Sung's writings! Now we have The Subject, Capitalism, and Religion, a finely-crafted book, as full of heart as it is of reason. Here is heart beating with spiritual discernment, theological reflection, and philosophical acumen - all in right measure. Here is reason emerging from the concrete cries of excluded and oppressed subjects of Latin America and worldwide, culminating in Jung Mo Sung's brilliant theory of 'the subject' that challenges all with a new solidarity of hope." -Mark Lewis Taylor, Maxwell M. Upson Professor of Theology and Culture, Princeton Theological Seminary

"What a supple and invigorating meditation on our troubled humanness. Jung Mo Sung summons a multi-dimensional theory of the subject, a socially, economically, and spiritually wrought agent capable of enlivening the sensitivities numbed by capitalism and failed by utopian simplifications. He offers with disarming hopefulness and critical nuance an ethic of human solidarity enmeshed in complex, self-organizing systems." - Catherine Keller, Professor of Constructive Theology, Drew University; author of God and Power: Counterapocalyptic Meditations

"Jung Mo Sung offers us here what is arguably the most significant single-authored volume in English demonstrating the continued relevance of Latin American liberation theology in the last decade. The text is thoroughly interdisciplinary, offering a form of critical reflection that engages multiple fields and that is readily understandable to students and scholars in multiple fields in the humanities and the social sciences, in addition to Christian theologians. This is an important contribution to contemporary social theory, philosophical anthropology, ethics, critical economy, and theology." -Nelson Maldonado-Torres, Associate Professor of Ethnic Studies, University of California, Berkeley
