Endorsements & Reviews-

"'Tell Us Our Names' is a timely book, beautifully written and understandable by all. Its particular challenge lies in the folk and fairy tales that provide the text. Here are the roots of both faith and reason -- and the direct way to dump excess baggage and discover new and better questions. Scripture, Oriental wisdom, ecumenical theology: all receive calm and imaginative treatment in Song's hands."
--Joseph McLelland, McGill University, Montreal

"In this volume Dr. Song offers us 'golden keys to open the stonegates of religion.' Gathering together intercultural insights from the experience of people in many countries, these parables and stories usher us into the presence of Mystery. The easy flow of storytelling, smoothly mixed with sensitive interpretation, makes this volume very readable. To those who believe that theology has to do only with ideas and concepts, this volume may come as a surprise and a joyful discovery."
--S. J. Samartha, former Director, Dialogue Programme, World Council of Churches, Geneva

"C. S. Song explores the folk tales of the world and depicts God's answer to the thrust for the redemption of the people with 'one stroke of an Asian brush.' Here, the culture, religion, history, and suffering of the Asian people is the medium of God's redemptive revelation. Certainly, by this work he has contributed another 'transposition' of the biblical message to Asia, a monumental accomplishment in the formation of Asian theology. Reading this Theology of Folk Tales is exciting and illuminative."
--Nam-Dong Suh, Director, Institute for Mission Education, Seoul, Korea
