Item description for The Jesus of Asian Women (Women from the Margins Series) by Muriel Orevillo-Montenegro...

Overview
This critical survey of christologies in Asia focuses on the need to recognize the oppressed condition of Asian women and to work for their liberation. Orevillo-Montenegro shows how the christologies brought to Asia by Western missionaries failed to take into account the reality of Asia with its great diversity of cultures and traditional religions. She surveys christologies that were developed first by male Asian theologians and shows how inadequate they were for women. In the end, she maintains that an Asian christology must be liberative for Asian women who suffer from poverty, the oppression of cultural traditions, a lack of basic human rights such as education, and gender discrimination.

Publishers Description
This critical survey of Asian christologies focuses on the need to recognize and end the oppressed condition of Asian women. Orevillo-Montenegro shows how the christologies brought to Asia by Western missionaries failed to take into account the reality of Asia with its great diversity of cultures and traditional religions. She then describes christologies developed by male Asian theologians and those developed by women in India, Korea, the Philippines, and Hong Kong, concluding that any Asian christology must liberate Asian women who suffer from poverty, oppressive cultural traditions, a lack of basic human rights such as education, and gender discrimination.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Jesus of Asian Women (Women from the Margins Series)?

The Old Re-hashed  Jun 15, 2008
Except for a strong attack on colonialism in the sense that Asian womens' oppression is the result of Christian missionary activity - as if non-Christian women are completely unoppressed and certainly were unoppressed as a class before Christianity - the same radical feminist christian (Catholic) theologian old tired arguments of the 1980s and 90s are dragged out in this book: why women should be ordained to the priesthood, why gay and lesbian persons should be ordained to the priesthood - enough said! Being a Phillipino one's first assumption is that she is a Catholic which fact is always a good opener for radical feminist theologians. Looking into her background whatever she may have started out as her training and CV would make that seem unlikely.
If you are a committed feminist and wish re-inforcement in process theology, (outdated) liberation theology, and the wide area known as neo-gnosticism - go to it!
