Abundant Harvest

Stories of Asian Lutherans

Edmond Yee &
J. Paul Rajashekar, Editors

This book acknowledges the active involvement, struggles, ministries and contributions of dedicated Asian Christians in spreading the good news among Asian peoples. It is unique because its main purpose is to record the stories of indigenous Lutheran leaders, lay and clergy, who had/have made distinguished contributions. This book is also special as it acknowledges the "firsts" who have distinguished themselves by having broken ecclesio-social barriers that have kept them from exercising their authentic selves, capacities and rights in serving the church and society.

Therefore this is not an attempt to write another "history" of Lutheran churches in Asia seen this time by Asian Lutherans; rather it seeks to narrate "the people's history" from the vantage point of the people.

This volume is valuable in being the first book of this kind; second, in its illustrative coverage and depiction of Asian Lutherans in Asia as well as in diaspora; third, in helping Asian Lutherans themselves to become better acquainted with the leadership, lay and clergy, past and present, of the various churches in Asia and North America; fourth, in its writing style, intended for both casual readers and professionals interested in Asian Lutherans; and fifth, in its capacity to serve as the foundation for individuals doing research on the subject of Asian Lutherans.
