'Martin Luther and Buddhism: Aesthetics of Suffering' carefully traces the historical and theological context of Luther's breakthrough in terms of articulating justi?cation and justice in connection to the Word of God and divine suffering. Chung critically and constructively engages in dialogue with Luther, and with later interpreters of Luther such as Barth and Moltmann, placing the Reformer in dialogue not only with Asian spirituality and religions but also with an emerging global theology of religions. "After reading, I decided to recommend all students and anyone interested in theology in Europe, America, and Asia urgently and repeatedly to read it." - Jurgen Moltmann, Professor Emeritus, University of Tubingen, Germany "Dr. Chung is engaged in a deeply theological re?ection about Buddhism and Protestantism. His work is original and profound." - John B. Cobb Jr., Ingraham Professor Emeritus, Claremont School of Theology "Of all the 'turns' in Luther studies, the turn to Asia, so eloquently and powerfully heralded by Paul Chung, might end up being the most signi?cant one both ecumenically and theologically. As a scholar fully conversant with both the best of Western and Asian traditions, Dr. Chung is uniquely quali?ed to help us read not only in Buddhist context but also in a wider contextual and global horizon. This is the direction of international systematic-hermeneutical theology for the third millennium!" - Veli-Matti Karkkainen, Professor of Systematic Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary, and Docent of Ecumenics, University of Helsinki "The book 'Martin Luther and Buddhism' by Paul Chung is a fascinating attempt to develop an emancipatory theology of religions in the Asian context of poverty and suffering as well as of religious plurality." - Ulrich Duchrow, Professor of Systematic Theology, University of Heidelberg "Bringing together Luther's theology with Buddhist understanding as embedded in Asian culture is a huge challenge. Dr. Chung takes on this challenge with a far-ranging breadth of knowledge and creative insight, especially for interfaith dialogue." - Karen L. Bloomquist, Director, Theology and Studies, Lutheran World Federation, and Adjunct Professor of Theological Ethics, Wartburg Theological Seminary PAUL S. CHUNG is Assistant Professor of Lutheran Witness and World Christianity at Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa.
