"This critical survey of Asian christologies focuses on the need to recognize and end the oppressed condition of Asian women who suffer from poverty, cultural strictures, gender discrimination, and a lack of access to basic human rights." "Muriel Orevillo-Montenegro shows how the christologies brought to Asia by Western missionaries often failed to take into account the realities of Asia: its great diversity of cultures as well as its varieties of religious expression. She then describes christologies developed by male Asian theologians as well as those developed by women in India, Korea, the Philippines, and Hong Kong."--BOOK JACKET.
-Publisher

This critical survey of christologies in Asia focuses on the need for christologies to recognize the oppressed condition of women in Asia and to work toward their liberation. Orevillo-Montenegro begins by exploring the origins of christology in the early church and then moves from the New Testament through the patristic period to the rise of liberation theologies and feminist theologies. In the second part of this book, Orevillo-Montenegro surveys christologies developed by male Asian theologies and then surveys and critiques feminist theologies from India, Korea, the Philippines, and Hong Kong. In the end, she maintains that Asian christology must be liberative for Asian women who suffer from poverty, the oppression of cultural traditions, a lack of basic human rights such as education, and gender discrimination.
-Publisher

This book shows how the christologies brought to Asia by Western missionaries failed to consider the reality of Asia with its diverse cultures and religions. This book highlights how inadequate christologies first developed by male Asian theologians were for women.
