The rapid growth of Christianity in Korea is intimately connected with how Koreans appropriated the Bible in their unique religio-cultural milieu and socio-political reality in the late 18th century and onwards.
Dr. Won Lee will address the following:
How has the Bible been used to address the political realities of suffering and humiliation of Korean people?
In what ways have Koreans negotiated the authority of the Bible in the context of plural sacred texts?
Are there features in Korean interpretations of the Bible that bear the influences of Korean culture and religiosity?
