Song, Choan-Seng Overview. Most widely held works about Choan-Seng Song.
Most widely held works by Choan-Seng Song. The accommodation of Asian religious terminologies and concepts is possible as long as the biblical meaning is included.
Yet there is a question of where to draw the line between syncretism and accomodation. In the beginning were stories, not texts: Writers, painters, sculptors, artists, and indeed, people of all walks of life live by the telling of their stories.
Stories are the most basic mode of human communication. Thus it is vital to cgoan why Christians and above all Christian theologians so often fail to express their faith in terms of story.
The vast majority of the Hebrew Scriptures, for example, consists of stories. Jesus proclaimed and taught about the Reign of God through stories and parables.
Song, Choan-Seng 1929-
At the heart of the Christian faith are stories, not concepts, propositions, or ideas. Given the deep rootedness of the Christian faith in storytelling, this book seeks to address the fact that Christian theology has too often taken the form of chlan, ideas, and systems. This book is an attempt to speak of Christian faith and theology in stories rather than systems.
Through stories, both biblical and non-biblical, this book shows how we might reimagine the task of Christian theology in the life of faith today. At its heart is the conviction srng in the beginning there were stories and that, in sent end and indeed, beyond the end, are stories, not texts, ideas, and concepts.

Choan-Seng Song (Author of Third-Eye Theology)
Tell us our names: The tears of Lady Meng: Song tells a charming story of long ago and then proceeds to draw some not-so-charming implications for what it means in our time. The ‘safe’ tale turns out to have devastating impact on what we thought was our own secure world. Scripture, tears, prophetic insight, social analysis, politics, hope — all of them are incorporated in this deceptively small package.

Song, Choan-Seng [WorldCat Identities]
Jesus and the reign of God by Choan-Seng Song Book 10 editions published between and in Chinese and English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide God is the story of Jesus, and Jesus is the story of the people. Jesus and the Reign of God is a powerful and compelling evocation of the vision and reality of God’s reign and its possibilities for the “transfiguration of life” in faith.
Song’s search for a “vision of life in God,” inaugurated in his previous volume, Jesus, the Crucified People, takes him from ancient Egypt and China to modern Singapore, from Gethsemane to Tiananmen Square and always pulls him back to the Gospel stories. In its earnest and intense quest for religious integrity in a world no longer dominated or defined by Christianity, Song’s theology is a startling rebuke to Christologies centered either in historical-critical searches or church doctrines.
For him theology is the biography of God, and Jesus’ message of God’s reign is evident in the densely packed histories of strangers and outcasts: Jesus in the power of the Spirit by Choan-Seng Song Book 9 editions published between and in English and Chinese and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide The pioneer of contextual theology concludes his trilogy on the person and message of Jesus with a profound meditation on the significance of Jesus for a post-Christian world.
