About-

The problem of the barbarous excess of human suffering is becoming the main question of global Christianity. In an intercultural, globalizing world, how do we envision the wounds of sin and God's saving work of healing, liberation, and redemption? Salvation for the Sinned-Against attempts to address these questions and to suggest a renewed understanding of God's salvation for the victims of sin within the intercultural and globalizing context of the twenty-first century. It offers a thorough treatment of Edward Schillebeeckx, intercultural hermeneutics, and the Korean concept of han, and brings them into dialogue with the Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World Gaudium et spes. This book is the first in-depth study of han from a Roman Catholic perspective and the first to attempt to integrate han into Roman Catholic theology in order to begin to envision salvation for the sinned-against creature. Its insights into the experience and message of salvation for the sinned-against (as well as the perpetrators) speak not only to the ecclesial sphere but to the public sphere and beyond. Although written from a Western, North American social location, this is a book that can be useful far beyond this context.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"For readers seeking to see what kind of theological discourse will be necessary to keep different regions of World Christianity in communication with one another in the years to come, this book provides an excellent example. It sets a standard for what kind of theological thinking is needed for a World Christianity to be genuinely 'catholic,' in the sense of all-embracing, and respectful of the myriad voices of Christians today."
--from the foreword by Robert J. Schreiter

"Salvation for the Sinned-Against is an exhilarating book that brings forth an inclusive soteriology for Roman Catholics and for all other Christians. . . . It is an outstanding book to read for all seminarians and church leaders."
--Andrew Sung Park, author of The Wounded Heart of God

"This book is an excellent demonstration of the fascinating insights which intercultural dialogue can generate to the benefit of theology… Considine exquisitely succeeds in guiding his readers in systematic fashion through his complex and innovative argument."
-- Christiane Aplers, as reviewed in Tijdschrift voor Theologie

"What I am encouraged by is this author's close attention to method and content - to the how in the what - the integration of which provides clear evidence of a hermeneutical commitment to intercultural engagement and the need for serious cross-cultural theology within world Christianity…Considine is a theologian strongly in the Catholic tradition who desires to be of service to the Church. His work aims at amplifying the voices of the wounded. In our age, and considering this January, public theology requires amplification of the wounded as much as ever."
-- Michael Reid Trice, as reviewed in Journal of Lutheran Ethics
