About the Author

R. S. Sugirtharajah is Emeritus Professor of Biblical Hermeneutics at the University of Birmingham.


Written by a distinguished scholar of Christianity and postcolonial studies, Jesus in Asia broadens our historical memory and enlivens our religious imagination. This book sharply contests the historical quest of Jesus in the West, and is remarkable in its broad historical and cultural reach--an invaluable recovery of Asian representations of Jesus.--Kwok Pui-lan, author of Postcolonial Imagination and Feminist Theology
Jesus in Asia is an extraordinary gift. With great erudition, Sugirtharajah illuminates a broad history of previously neglected writings on Jesus, across many centuries and from diverse parts of Asia, by Hindu, Buddhist, Confucian, and Jain scholars. By placing Jesus within Asian cultures and religions, this book offers a necessary challenge to the isolationism of Western Jesus studies.--Halvor Moxnes, author of Jesus and the Rise of Nationalism: A New Quest for the Nineteenth-Century Historical Jesus
[An] excellent book...Sugirtharajah brings together some fascinating parts of the global and perpetually expanding biography of Jesus...Jesus in Asia deserves to be read widely.--Chad M. Bauman"Christian Century" (08/01/2018)
