This edited volume brings Ahn Byung-Mu’s minjung theology into dialogue with twenty-first-century readers. Ahn Byung-Mu was one of the pioneers of Korean minjung theology. The centerpiece of his minjung theology is focused on the Greek word ochlos, understood as the divested, marginalized, powerless people.

Part 1 introduces readers to his life and theological legacy. Part 2 includes four important writings of Ahn Byung-Mu: “Jesus and Minjung in the Gospel of Mark,” “Minjung Theology in the Gospel of Mark,” “The Transmitters of Jesus Event Tradition,” and “Minjok, Minjung, and Church.” Part 3 contains a collection of articles from international scholars who evaluate and engage Ahn’s ochlos/minjung theology in their own fields and formulate critical readings of minjung theology. Responses include postcolonial, black theology, and feminist perspectives.
