In this book, the author provides an insightful look at Confucianism and Christianity. The study argues that the religious philosophies of Wang Yang-ming and Karl Barth are actually similar views of a common issue. The issue is radical humanization. The author explains how Wang and Barth take one's commitment as the point of departure. He analyzes similarities in their articulation of this humanization, their views of evil, and their overall definition of radical humanity. Wang Yang-ming and Karl Barth provides a unique and balanced study of Confucianism and Christianity, avoiding tagging either religion as inferior or superior. This book will provide excellent reading for students, theologians, and scholars of religion as well as ministers who are interested in inter-religious dialogue and the theology of religion. It is also highly appropriate for graduate courses such as Christianity and Other Religions, The Gospel Across Culture, The Theology of Karl Barth, and Confucianism.
