This colourful catalogue features paintings and statements by five leading contemporary Asian artists, Sawai Chinnawong (Thailand), He Qi (China), Nalini Jayasuriya (Sri Lanka), Nyoman Darsane (Bali) and Wisnu Sasongko (Thailand), which highlight the very different ways artists of diverse cultures today perceive Biblical tales. Over 40 new paintings are explored showing how the Judeo-Christian narrative has been adapted for both western and indigenous audiences. Though greatly influenced by regional and cultural traditions, many of these artists have also been exposed to western Judeo-Christian teachings, and it is this mixture of influences which is so striking in their work. The book considers the importance of these works to the development and exportation of Asian Biblical Art to the West and its reception, audience and patronage.

MEDIA REVIEWS
-A book to enhance the library of anyone interested in the subtle fruits of the indigenization of the Gospel at both the sponsoring and receiving ends of the missionary enterprise. I would highly recommend it to students and teachers of mission, contextual theology, Christianity in Asia, and Asian art as a valuable, eye-opening and thought-provoking resource- Rosemary Dewerse, Mission Studies
