Product Description

Traditional doctrines of sin and salvation center primarily on the moral agency of the sinner. While this focus adequately describes the responsibility of individual for their sinful attitudes and actions, it fails to deal adequately with the pervasive reality of the suffering of the victims of sin. Andrew Sung Park addresses this long-standing imbalance by drawing on the Korean concept of han. Han is the relational consequence of sin; it is the scar which results in victims from the sin of those who have wronged them. The author asserts that one cannot grasp the full meaning of the sin and guilt of sinners until one has looked at the han and shame of their victims. Abingdon Press, Paperback, 202 pages.

Publisher's Description

Traditional doctrines of sin and salvation center primarily on the moral agency of the sinner. Andrew Sung Park addresses the relational consequence of sin--the pervasive reality of victims' suffering and the scar from the sins of others who have wronged them. He asserts that one cannot grasp the full meaning of the sin and guilt of siners until one has looked at the concept han or the shame of the victims. If reconciliation with God and with other humans is to take place, not only must one's sin be repented and one's guilt forgiven, but the han of those who have been wronged must be healed.
