Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book A Protestant Theology of Passion contains the table of contents, foreword and the maps of Korea in the three kingdoms and Korean war. In order to see and experience the context of Korean Minjung theology, Volker Küster came to Korea and visited most of the practicing Minjung theologians. Methodologically Minjung theology is that Minjung theology is inductive and not deductive, descriptive and therefore not normative, story telling and not system building, biographical and not theological construction, and it is open to dialogue and not closed and final as in dogmas and fundamentalism. Minjung theology is not a theology of the Word, but a theology about the world and for the world. Minjung theology has been categorized as "Korean-style liberation theology". At the same time, it has been called a political theology born in the political situation of Korea in the 1970s.

Keywords: Korea; Liberation Theology; Minjung Theology; political theology; protestant theology; Volker Küster
