Tears of Lady Meng: A Parable of People's Political Theology

Tears of Lady Meng: A Parable of People's Political Theology


1 New & Used Starting at $4.91


Here is a superb example of the new way of doing theology. C.S. Song tells a charming story of long ago and then proceeds to draw some not-so-charming implications for what it means in our time. The "safe" tale turns out to have devastating impact on what we thought was our own secure world. Scripture, tears, prophetic insight, social analysis, politics, hope -- all of them are incorporated in this deceptively small package.

Professor of Theology and Ethics

Pacific School of Religion

This is a poignant meditation that cannot be labeled. Song's way of theology is his own; it challenges everyone.

Princeton Theological Seminary

I watch for whatever this man from South-East Asia writes.

John A.T. Robinson

author of Honest to God

C.S. Song is among the most creative theologians writing today. He is one of the reasons why many today contend that the most important theological writings are coming from Third World theologians.

James H. Cone

Charles A. Briggs Professor of Systematic Theology
