As Hans K?ng said, "No peace among the nations without peace among the religions. No peace among the religions without dialogue between the religions. No dialogue between the religions without investigation of the foundations of the religions." "Accommodation and Acceptance" is a crucial work in both promoting interreligious dialogue and exploring the turbulent history of Christian faith and identity in Asia down the years. From the reaction to missions, often inextricably linked with the practice of colonialism, to the rise of religious pluralism, Ambrose Mong examines the relationships between the leading faiths of Asia up to the present day. Whether practicing pluralism or exclusivism, the history of Christianity in Asia is long and fascinating. Ambrose Mong delves into the biography of intercultural pioneers like Matteo Ricci and Timothy Richard to understand better the theology - as well as the pragmatism - behind cultural accommodation, and the necessary mutability of an eternal church. "With his trademark scholarly rigor and intellectual honesty Ambrose Mong explores one of the most challenging issues facing Christianity in Asia today. For him, accommodation and acceptance of Asian religious pluralism is not an option for Christianity but an imperative for its mission. Mong masterfully shows how Christian faith needs to be reconceptualized in its encounter with Asian religions, from Christology to ecclesiology to trinitarian theology. This book is a must-read not only for Asian Christians but also, and one may argue especially, for Western Christians." Professor Peter C. Phan, Ellacuria Chair of Catholic Social Thought, Georgetown University, Washington DC. " 'Accommodation and Acceptance' shows us a 'gentle way' for dialogue, mutual respect and even the "holy envy" of admiration which should be ours in the interreligious encounter of the twenty-first century. Mong's is an authentic voice and merits great attention." Rev. James F. Loughran, Director of the Graymoor Ecumenical and Interreligious Institute, New York. Ambrose Mong PhD is a Research Associate at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. His previous publications include "Are Non-Christians Saved?" 2015 and "Purification of Memory" James Clarke & Co, 2015.
