Riassunto: Updated from the 1997 original, with new autobiographical information and a new introduction and conclusion.
A history and analysis of Asian theologies, both past and present, with a critical eye toward those expressions which are too foreign to the Asian experience and context.
An essential book for any student of World Christianity, Mangoes or Bananas? takes a forthright look at the various strands of Asian Christian theology, evaluating both their histories and the degree to which they remain pertinent to Asian experiences of God and culture. Asian theology, in Yung's conception, is often more like a banana, with a beautiful yellow exterior, but white within. The mango, on the other hand, comes in many different shades of skin, but inside it is completely yellow.
