Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 160258575X, Hardcover)

A major catalyst for the growth of Korean Christianity occurred at the turn of the twentieth century when Western missionaries encountered the religious landscape of Korea. These first-generation missionaries have been framed as destroyers of Korean religion and culture. Yet, as Sung-Deuk Oak shows in this book existing Korean religious tradition also impacted the growth and character of evangelical Christianity. The melding of indigenous Korean religions and Christianity led to a highly localised Korean Christianity that flourished in the early modern era. The book sorts fact from myth in this exhaustive examination of the local and global forces that shaped Christianity on the Korean Peninsula.
