This volume aims to put into sharp relief the shape and contour of the Christian religion in contemporary Japan and Korea. The essays collected here resulted from a project on "Christianity in East Asia" co-sponsored by Meiji Gakuin University's Institute for Christian Studies and the Global Mission Unit of the Presbyterian Church (USA), and are written by scholars who are themselves mainly from East Asia. The papers, using an intraregional approach (ie; Christianity in Japan from a Korean perspective and vice-versa) deal with various aspects of the transplantation and historical development of Christianity, explore various aspects of the Christian encounter with indigenous religions and societies, and consider some of the major difficulties faced by the transplanted religion. The perspectives offered here should be useful to scholars in Asian studies and religion, to those engaged in theological education and mission studies, as well as to church administrators responsible for policy and direction in mission planning.
