A deeply moving and challenging book, Jesus, the Crucified People breaks a theological stranglehold on the figure of Jesus and glimpses in a new, non-Western way both Jesus and Christianity.Against the rich cultural background of Asia, Song's volume explores the mystery of the Word that from the beginning of time now comes poignantly to us in the stories and testimonies of women, men, and children. Song eloquently fashions a people hermeneutic to sketch an account of Jesus' life, ministry, death, and resurrection for our world today.A powerful Asian Christology. The suffering of Asian women, men, and children struggling for life in the face of death confronts us with the passion of Christ in our neighbor. -- Letty M. Russell, Yale Divinity SchoolC.S.
