Telling the story: an Asian feminist perspective

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


How does the story of who the Triune God is and what this God does relate to the story of life on Earth? Is the Christian story part of the earth’s story or is the earth’s story part of God’s story, from creation to consummation? In response to these overarching almost overwhelming questions, in drawing from my social-cultural context, I ask what these stories mean from an Asian perspective where the Christian story of creation finds expression in and through the creation stories or more pointedly, ecological responses of other world religions and spiritualities of Asia. I also interrogate these questions from a feminist perspective as the Christian story of creation is intrinsically not only an anthropocentric but also androcentric one; the domination of (hu)man over nature and man over woman, respectively.
