The Making of Korean Christianity

Full Product Description

A major catalyst for the growth of Korean Christianity occurred at the turn of the twentieth century when Western missionaries encountered the religious landscape of Korea. These first-generation missionaries have been framed as destroyers of Korean religion and culture. Yet, as Sung-Deuk Oak shows in The Making of Korean Christianity , existing Korean religious tradition also impacted the growth and character of evangelical Christianity. The melding of indigenous Korean religions and Christianity led to a highly localized Korean Christianity that flourished in the early modern era. The Making of Korean Christianity sorts fact from myth in this exhaustive examination of the local and global forces that shaped Christianity on the Korean Peninsula. The Making of Korean Christianity was recognized by thei"'International Bulletin of Missionary Research as one of the top Fifteen Outstanding Books of 2013 for Mission Studies.

The Making of Korean Christianity by Sung-Deuk Oak was published by Baylor University Press in November 2015. The ISBN for The Making of Korean Christianity is 9781602585768.
