About-

Based on the critical conversations between education, liturgy, sociology, and theology, this book suggests an alternative eucharistic pedagogy for the Presbyterian Church of Korea by reforming eucharistic and curricular practices with attention to students' specific local contexts. This process includes the formulation of the definition of the new eucharistic pedagogy, the reconceptualization of concepts regarding the eucharistic pedagogy, and five steps as pedagogical strategies for a new eucharistic pedagogy for the Presbyterian Church of Korea including pedagogical guidelines for teachers and students.

This book will open the door for further educational and liturgical discussions of the work of contextualization in churches around the world. Even though this study investigates a contextual pedagogy limited to the PCK, this task needs attention and study in a larger context beyond the PCK. The gospel is the worldwide truth that cannot be limited to a certain culture but becomes incarnated into each local culture. Therefore, this kind of contextual investigation between the gospel and culture will not be optional, but imperative to all churches.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"When Christian practices become adapted and imbedded in a culture's distinctive ways of knowing and acting, the gospel truly comes alive. Two of these central practices--worship and Christian education--are brought together in this groundbreaking work. Shin has provided the Korean church and the global church with guidance in examining, revising, and re-appropriating practices of eucharistic pedagogy in ways that will inspire and enrich all who explore these pages."
--Jane Rogers Vann, Emerita Professor of Christian Education, Union Presbyterian Seminary

"Rice cake and the cup, pedagogy and Eucharist, missionary movement in the nineteenth century and the renewal of liturgical practices in the twenty-first century, foreign theology and Korean indigenous thought--these are the ingredients of Hyoung Seop Shin's book. Learn about it; take and eat."
--Claudio Carvalhaes, Associate Professor of Liturgy and Worship, Lutheran Theological Seminary

"Hyoung Seop Shin's book is very valuable to those who try to understand important implications of cultural roots in ritualistic practices and is helpful in their search for a deeper understanding of Eucharistic pedagogy."

--Syngman Rhee, Professor of Intercultural Studies, Union Presbyterian Seminary
