♥ Book Title : Sola Scriptura in Asia
☯ Full Synopsis : "The echo of Luther’s hammer resounds in Asia, five hundred years after the Wittenberg controversy: the cross is a flashpoint in China; Korea seeks ecclesiastical reform; the mystical union thrives in Laos; even Kant whispers in old Batavia. The diversity of ideas and influences of the Reformation is as broad and fascinating as the continent—resisting reduction to the postcolonial movement and demonstrating an affinity with Protestant foundations that somehow remains uniquely Asian. This volume brings together the reflections of Christian academics from the continent to offer a sample of the theological work that remains largely inaccessible to the broader scholarly community, with contributions in the fields of theology, biblical studies, philosophy, and Christian higher education. If the quincentennial of the Reformation has revealed anything, it is the inauguration of Asia as the locus of biblical and theological scholarship for the next five hundred years."Article| Yongbom Lee| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : A Two-Year Stint in Asia Wraps Up amid Unfinished Business
☯ Full Synopsis : "JEL is going about his business as a professor in Canada when there’s a knock on his door one April morning. The visitor, Royal, is a language instructor in China looking for teaching material, and he finds a treasure trove in JEL’s office. But the more consequential aspect of the meeting, for JEL at least, is it reignites his lifelong dream to teach in China. He chats with Royal who advises him that it would be best for him to go to China if he’s serious about securing a position. Once there, he puts him in touch with Min, a university professor who might be able to help him get a job. JEL returns home feeling great about the trip, but then he gets an ominous call from Royal, who tells him to say good-bye to his teaching plans. “You just can’t trust Min anymore,” he says, telling him that she’ll do whatever it takes to get her Canadian residence permit. Suddenly, teaching in China has become a lot more complicated, but JEL throws caution to the wind and decides to move forward with his plans."Article| JEL| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Islam in South Asia in Practice
☯ Full Synopsis : "This volume of Princeton Readings in Religions brings together the work of more than thirty scholars of Islam and Muslim societies in South Asia to create a rich anthology of primary texts that contributes to a new appreciation of the lived religious and cultural experiences of the world's largest population of Muslims. The thirty-four selections--translated from Arabic, Persian, Urdu, Bengali, Tamil, Gujarati, Hindavi, Dakhani, and other languages--highlight a wide variety of genres, many rarely found in standard accounts of Islamic practice, from oral narratives to elite guidance manuals, from devotional songs to secular judicial decisions arbitrating Islamic law, and from political posters to a discussion among college women affiliated with an "Islamist" organization. Drawn from premodern texts, modern pamphlets, government and organizational archives, new media, and contemporary fieldwork, the selections reflect the rich diversity of Islamic belief and practice in South Asia. Each reading is introduced with a brief contextual note from its scholar-translator, and Barbara Metcalf introduces the whole volume with a substantial historical overview."Article| Barbara D.
