A Theology of Hope: Contextual Perspectives in Korean Pentecostalism by Sang Yun Lee, Allan H. Anderson

This book digs deep into Yonggi Cho's teaching of the Threefold Blessing: salvation, financial prosperity, and healing, expressing the biblical concept of hope in the Korean Pentecostal context. Ironically, hope always begins situations where it is lacking. The Threefold Blessing was the most urgent and eager hope in the desperate socio-economical and political situation following the Korean War. Cho's theology, successfully contextualized, became deeply lodged in the Korean Pentecostals’ lives, which resulted in the growth of strong churches in Korea. But the context has now changed, in part due to the gospel's successful penetration of Korean culture and the Threefold Blessing must be reinterpreted and theologically recontextualized. The original Threefold Blessing emphasized the wellbeing of the individual person. The new Threefold Blessing must expand its theological perspectives to include social and ecological matters. This book suggests ways for its recontextualization for present and future of Korean Pentecostals.
