n Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - Reconciliation in Korea : models from Korean Christian theology

Volume 35, Issue 1

Since the 1970s, Korean Christian theology has emerged in a number of different strands; including theology, Full Gospel theology, theology, and feminist theology. Reconciliation is an important theme in any Christian theology, and in the contemporary political context of South Korea it assumes an even greater significance. Examination of the theology of leading theologians in each strand-Suh Nam Dong, Cho Yonggi, Ryu Tong-Shik, and Chung Hyun Kyung-reveals that each conceptualises reconciliation in a different way as humanisation, healing, harmony, and , respectively. A dialogue between these different models suggests an enhanced vision of reconciliation to offer in the process of reunification.
