<title> ABSTRACT </title>The popular writings of the pastor of the world's largest congregation, David Yonggi Cho, are analyzed in this article in an attempt to show how his theology must be viewed primarily from within his own Korean context, and not from the perspective of the American 'prosperity gospel'. Cho has been the subject of criticism from both evangelical and liberal writings, neither of which has done justice to his particular context. The writings of Cho demonstrate that his 'contextual theology' is born in the particular situation of Korean suffering and illustrate how he has advocated a 'Pentecostal theology' that is standard classical Pentecostal theology throughout the world. In particular, the issue of Cho's interaction with Korean shamanism is examined in the light of his 'threefold blessings' teaching.
