"With his trademark scholarly rigor and intellectual honesty Ambrose Mong explores one of the most challenging issues facing Christianity in Asia today. For him, accommodation and acceptance of Asian religious pluralism is not an option for Christianity but an imperative for its mission. Mong masterfully shows how Christian faith needs to be reconceptualized in its encounter with Asian religions, from Christology to ecclesiology to Trinitarian theology. This book is a must-read not only for Asian Christians but also, and one may argue especially, for Western Christians."
Professor Peter C. Phan, Ellacuria Chair of Catholic Social Thought, Georgetown University
"In the fifty years since the promulgation of Nostra Aetate, many Western Roman Catholic scholars have attempted to assist Roman Catholics and others with the reception of that document. Ambrose Mong is a rising and powerful Asian voice adding vitally to that colloquy. He takes the necessary risks in developing accommodation where needed but never diverts from the essentials of the Gospel. Accommodation and Acceptance shows us a 'gentle way' for dialogue, mutual respect and even the 'holy envy' of admiration which should be ours in the interreligious encounter of the twenty-first century. Mong's is an authentic voice and merits great attention."
