About-

"When we say that God is rice . . . we take rice as the symbol of God's gift of life." The provocative title is actually the title of the first essay in the book that explores how the gospel calls us to live in harmony with nature and neighbor, to secure just social organizations and be open to renewal. "The Community of the Magnificat" is a penetrating study of the interaction between Christ and culture in Asia. "The Ethics of Betweeness" is a case study of Sozo Tanaka who was one of the pioneers of the ecological movement and the people's movement in Japan. "Christ of Wabi" is a Christian reflection on beauty in the Japanese cultural context.
