Overview

In this book, the author provides an insightful look at Confucianism and Christianity. The study argues that the religious philosophies of Wang Yang-ming and Karl Barth are actually similar views of a common issue. The issue is radical humanization. The author explains how Wang and Barth take one's commitment as the point of departure. He analyzes similarities in their articulation of this humanization, their views of evil, and their overall definition of radical humanity. Wang Yang-ming and Karl Barth provides a unique and balanced study of Confucianism and Christianity, avoiding tagging either religion as inferior or superior. This book will provide excellent reading for students, theologians, and scholars of religion as well as ministers who are interested in inter-religious dialogue and the theology of religion. It is also highly appropriate for graduate courses such as "Christianity and Other Religions," "The Gospel Across Culture," "The Theology of Karl Barth," and "Confucianism."

Editorial Reviews

Dialogue: A Journal Of Theology
This book deserves praise for its courage, clarity, and initiate in tackling unavoidable issues: issues having ramifications far beyond Kim's pages but nonetheless illumined by them. It deserves a genuine place in the dialogue as a significant contribution to the ongoing discussion of gospel and culture.

This book is an important contribution to Confucian-Christian dialogue. Focusing on the theme of "radical humanization," Kim has developed an imaginative and striking comparison of elements in Karl Barth's doctrine of sanctification and in Wang Yang-Ming's teachings on self-cultivation...thoroughly grounded in the sources and the conclusions are persuasive.
