About this book

Interweaving feminist theological ideas, Asian spirituality, and the witnesses of World War II sex slaves, this book offers a new theology of body. It examines the multi-layered meaning of the broken body of Christ from Christological, sacramental, and ecclesiological perspectives, while exploring the centrality of body in theological discourse.

About the authors

Hwa-Young Chong is an adjunct faculty member, teaching theology at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, USA.

Reviews

"Chong brings a new voice to the study of theology and worship that is both fascinating and life-giving. Her years of service as a Christian pastor are evident in the clear and gentle nature of her book, which brings Asian beliefs and meal practices into dialogue with Christian traditions. Chong's understanding of Christianity takes into account real suffering, but offers an alternative to views that make a virtue of accepting victimization. Instead, she suggests understanding holy communion as a feast of thanksgiving and love." - Ruth Duck, Professor of Worship, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, USA

"This profound book advances Eucharist and Asian feminist theology, and serves as a new horizon of hope for those who have suffered. Chong poignantly portrays the broken Maum of women as a map of the world's stories and histories. According to Chong, Christ's broken Maum presents heals the shattered bodies of women through the Holy Communion." - Andrew Sung Park, author of The Wounded Heart of God
