The Poor Woman
A Critical Analysis of Asian Theology and Contemporary Chinese Fiction by Women
by Wong Wai Ching
For more than five decades, Asian theologians have foregrounded Western constructions of the colonizer and the colonized, asserting in the process, strong national and thereby regional identity. The most conspicuous result is found in the over-generalized representation of women in “the poor woman” – a victim of imperialism of the West and all the social and political problems of Asian countries, and conversely, a fighter and rebel who fights for her fate and destiny despite extremely unfavourable circumstances under colonialism and its aftermath. This study of the fiction of Hong Kong women writers is therefore an attempt to introduce a rich and complex discourse of women into the monolithic representation of women in Asian theological discourse, and hence its implication to an alternative theological formulation, and in this particular case, an alternative to the formulation of Asian feminist Christology.

Religious Education in Context of Plurality and Pluralism
by Hope S. Antone
This book offers students, teachers and practitioners of Christian Education and Religious Education a way of contextualizing education theory. The book looks at Asian religious cultural plurality and critiques traditional typologies for dealing with it. It focuses on religious pluralism, which includes a commitment to one’s faith and openess to other faiths, and highlights the historical, educational, theological, biblical, and cultural bases for pluralism. Using “an invitation to the table community” as metaphor for religious education that deals with plurality and pluralism, the book suggests possibilities for relating education theory to other issues such as globalization, fundamentalism and the like.
