Jesus, the Crucified People


Fortress Press 1996

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


A deeply moving and challenging book, Jesus, the Crucified People breaks a theological stranglehold on the figure of Jesus and glimpses in a new, non-Western way both Jesus and Christianity.

Against the rich cultural background of Asia, C.S. Song’s volume explores the mystery of the Word that from the beginning of time now comes poignantly to us in the stories and testimonies of women, men, and children. Song eloquently fashions a “people hermeneutic” to sketch an account of Jesus’ life, ministry, death, and resurrection for our world today.

In the Logos edition, this valuable volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.

Praise for the Print Edition

A powerful Asian Christology. The suffering of Asian women, men, and children struggling for life in the face of death confronts us with the passion of Christ in our neighbor.

—Letty M. Russell (1929–2007), assistant professor of theology, Yale Divinity School

C. S. Song groans, cries, shouts, protests, and argues passionately against the God who crucified Jesus among the people of Asia . . . This theology is a great leap from Western and Latin American liberation theologies.

—David Kwang-sun Suh, former dean, Ewha Woman’s University, Seoul
