A Christian Theology of Suffering in the Context of Theravada Buddhism in Thailand
In this book, Satanun Boonyakiat elucidates a Christian theology of suffering relevant to the context of Theravada Buddhism in Thailand. Grounding his work in a trinitarian comparative theology of religions, Boonyakiat explores the ways in which Buddhist teachings on suffering – specifically the Four Noble Truths – can challenge, enrich, and deepen a Christian perspective. Ultimately, Dr Boonyakiat suggests, a Christian theology of suffering relevant to the people of Thailand, both Christian and Buddhist alike, must move beyond a traditional, western emphasis on theodicy to address a practical response to suffering’s lived reality – a response rooted firmly in Scripture and grounded in a theology of the cross.
