Updated from the 1997 original, with new autobiographical information and a new introduction and conclusion.

A history and analysis of Asian theologies, both past and present, with a critical eye toward those expressions which are too foreign to the Asian experience and context.

An essential book for any student of World Christianity, Mangoes or Bananas? takes a forthright look at the various strands of Asian Christian theology, evaluating both their histories and the degree to which they remain pertinent to Asian experiences of God and culture. Asian theology, in Yung's conception, is often more like a banana, with a beautiful yellow exterior, but white within. The mango, on the other hand, comes in many different shades of skin, but inside it is completely yellow.

About the Author:

Hwa Yung is a retired bishop of the Methodist Church in Malaysia. In July 2001, he was appointed the first Director of the Centre for the Study of Christianity in Asia (CSCA), Trinity Theological College, Singapore. Over the years he has held significant positions in various church and mission-related bodies, both in Malaysia and on the international scene. He has also authored three books and a substantial number of papers and articles in academic journals and books in the fields of mission and Asian Christianity.

Review:

"I can hardly find the words to praise sufficiently this new edition of Mangoes or Bananas?, a book I have long considered one of the most important theological works of the past quarter-century. This edition preserves the wealth of its predecessor and adds an autobiographical dimension that brings into relief both the theological options Hwa Yung has followed and why. That testimony adds depth to a book that everyone interested in world Christianity and mission must read. Hwa Yung helps us grasp what occurs when Asian Christians recover the transcendent depths of their cultures and open themselves to the light that the Gospel sheds on living Christianity authentically as Asians." --William R. Burrows
