For her, the task of Asian women's theology is to create a theology from the ground up that emerges from the lived experiences of Asian women who have suffered at the intersecting oppressions of colonialism, patriarchy, and classism. This theology should result in the liberation and full humanity not only of Asian women, but all people.

This was an interesting book to read. I have read some Asian theology in the past, but never from a feminist perspective. This has sparked an interest in the area for me, I hope to read more soon. I would absolutely recommend this book to any western reader interested in Asian theology, feminist theology, or the global church generally.

At the time this book was published in 1990, Chung Hyun Kyung (who has a doctorate from Union Theological Seminary) taught systematic theology at Ewha Women's University, in Seoul, Korea.

She wrote in the Preface, "This book is about emerging Asian women's liberation theology. I intend to present the context and specific contributions of emerging Asian women's theology out of their struggle for survival and liberation."

She begins by observing, "Doing theology is a personal and a political activity. As a Korean woman, I do theology in my search of what it means to be fully human in my struggle for wholeness and in my people's concrete historical fight for freedom... My theological questioning neither falls from the sky nor is derived primarily from the academy. Rather, it comes from my anger and hope as a Third World woman who refuses to be victimized by any kind of colonialism. My theology is also inspired by my burning desire for self-determination, and it originates from a liberation-oriented, Third World interpretation of people's history." (Pg. 1)

She regrets that, although she now has decided that she "would not waste my life solving the theological puzzles of the people who were the cause of our suffering," she spent most of her theological education "reacting against white European and North American theologies," and "hardly found the time and energy to construct my own theology." (Pg. 3)

She suggests that Asian women's yearning for, and rediscovery of, a Godhead "which contains both male and female qualities," is the same yearning for ful humanity "in which both males and females are fully represented as equal partners." (Pg. 48) Nevertheless, she points out that many Asian women feel closer to Mary as a model for full humanity than to Jesus, "for the obvious reason that Mary is a woman." (Pg. 75)

This is an excellent contribution to the gradually-emerging field of Asian women's theology, and very much worth reading.
