Chapter Summary

There are diverse models of Asian contextual theology in critical engagement with Western Protestant Theology. For a model of Asian contextual theology in the past, this chapter gives attention to Kitamori's theology of God's pain and Katsumi Takizawa's theology of Urfaktum Immanuel in Japan in their interpretation of Martin Luther and Karl Barth. For a model of Asian contextual theology in the present, it discusses minjung theology in South Korea in reference to Kitamori's theology of God's pain and C. S. Song's theology of the Third-Eye from Taiwan. Toward the advancement of a future model there is a further discussion of Luther, Barth, and Bonhoeffer for their relevance to a model of Asian irregular theology. Finally, the chapter outlines the meaning, argument, and direction of Asian irregular theology in a postfoundational and hermeneutical contour.
