Confucianism is different from, but not incompatible with Christianity. As both are compared in three areas - ethics, God and human Comparative theology could respond to all conditions because it brackets prejudices and evaluations when one encounters other faith and comes back to one's own religion renewed.

About the Author:

Dr. Ignatius Suh's interest in the Confucian-Christian dialogue came from his life experiences of conversion from his Confucian upbringing to Catholicism. Confucianism, Buddhism and Catholicism coexisted in his house. Following his studies at Oxford University, Dr. Suh earned his Doctor of Theology degree from the Graduate Theological Foundation. He is an ordained permanent deacon of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

Review:

Ignatius Suh has written a remarkable book. It is a fine example of the riches that await us when we begin to do theology comparatively. He tells the story of Korean Catholicism and its historic engagement with Confucianism by means of a sophisticated theological discussion of the profound similarities and intriguing differences which mark these two great traditions of religious thought. In the process, he gives the reader a solid background in not only the basics of Confucian teaching, but also a useful review of the Christian theological views of the other religious paths. --Rev. Dr. James L. Fredericks, Loyola Marymount University

Ignatius Suh's study is a stimulating meditation on the contrasting religious claims of Korean Confucianism and Catholicism, revealing the benefits of comparative theology. --Don Baker, The University of British Columbia
