What People are Saying About This

Wonhee Anne Joh

This significant work is sure to transform the field of Christian ethics. Asian American Christian Ethics challenges us to think theologically, to think ethically, and to delve into the very conditions of our existence with one another in order to understand the past, present, and future that is still to come. This volume is a must for students and scholars who want to know what happens when Christian ethics and Asian American critique intersect!

William Schweiker

Several years in the making through a Working Group of the Society of Christian Ethics, this rich and innovative volume is the first major scholarly contribution to the emerging field of Asian American Christian ethics. Grace Y. Kao and Ilsup Ahn’s work helps define a field of thought and will be the benchmark for future contributions to Asian American Christian ethics. I highly recommend this volume for anyone interested in cutting-edge work in ethics.

Miguel A. De La Torre

This book has deeply informed and challenged my thinking. Kao and Ahn invite us on a crucial exploration of the development and application of a new subfield called Asian American Christian ethics. No one who claims to be interested in the field of ethics can ever consider themselves fully informed if they fail to interact with this first, and hopefully not last, major contribution to the academic discourse from the Asian American experience relegated to the margins.
