A well-documented work on the history of modern Korea focusing on
the history of Christianity in relation to politics.
"This book is a clear and concise survey of the events and
issues regarding the relationship of church and state in modern
Korea. The author takes a historical approach in describing the
events relating to the Korean Christian social movements which
often have created friction and antagonism with the state or the
government. This book also provides the historical, political, and
social contexts for understanding the issues of church and politics
in Korea from the beginning of the Korean mission to the recent
period. It has an excellent account and well-documented
descriptions regarding the beginning of Christianity in the late
Chosen Korea, the persecution under the Japanese colonial rule of
Korea, and the liberation and unification movements of the
contemporary Korean church. What I like most about this book is
that the author discusses the issues of church and state in a clear
and consistent manner". -- Young-chan Ro, George Mason
"I like the way that the history of Christianity is presented in
the broad context of political developments in Korea. Instead of a
chronological approach, the book focuses on important issues in
each epoch and recapitulates the dynamic interplay between
Christianity and politics. It helps me to understand the
significance of Christianity in shaping some critical issues that
Korea has to face in her modernity". -- Jung Young Lee, Drew
