Visionary Sep 27, 2005
Professor Hyun Kyung Chung breaks new ground, with this vision of womens' spirituality which acknowleges our pluralist cultures. Insightful, original, authentic: a book in which spirit moves.
Great beginning for Asian feminist theology Apr 18, 2001
I have read this book several times and always find new insight out of Chung Hyun Kyung's work. "Struggle to be the Sun Again" gives voice to Asian and Asian-American women who are academically and spiritually doing work in the theological field. I highly recommend this book if you are interested in exploring the theological challenges for Asian women in the church.
Gobbelty gook contribution to liberation theology. Aug 17, 2000
Don't waste your time on this nonsense. Kyung writes as if the only important theology is post-1960 liberation theology. Such drivel is not unusual from a professor at Union Theological Seminary in NYC (anti-traditional, blah blah blah). But Kyung's work is shoddy scholarship at best. Makes a person wonder why James Cone was so eager to give it a good review...
