This book describes the unique relationship between Christianity and Confucianism. Korean Confucianism played an important role in the explosive growth of the Christian community and provided a basic foundation for the reception of Barth’s theology in Korea. The author analyses whether Barth’s ecclesiology, especially his theology of mission, pays sufficient attention to different cultures and religions; and whether Barth’s Christocentric theology is compatible with Korean Confucianism.

The Author: Young-Gwan Kim received his BA in theology from Sungkyul University, Anyang, Korea, his MDiv in pastoral studies from Tyndale Seminary, Toronto, Ontario, and his ThM in Christian thought from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, South-Hamilton, MA. Young-Gwan Kim attained a Ph.D. in Christian theology from McGill University, Montreal, Canada. He is presently an adjunct professor of Christian theology at Pyongtaek University, Korea.Review:
«To the European and North American reader this brilliant study of Karl Barth’s reception in Korea is full of surprises. Barth’s theology conceived as the Christian message spoken into the historical conditions of European society after World War I has come to new life and revealed an unexpected creativity in the historical context of Korea’s Protestant Church. In this process the Barthian suspicion regarding non-Christian religions was transmuted into a openness toward the Confucian tradition.» (Gregory Baum, professor emeritus, Faculty of religious studies, McGill University, Montreal, Canada)
