'Koyama's relaxed confidence, extending from the chapter titles to the homely to-ing and fro-ing between the author's own world and the deepest themes of theology make this is truly stimulating book ... One of the rare books of theology one can unreservedly recommend with full sincerity.' What The Tablet said about Waterbuffalo Theology is even more true of Three Mile an Hour God - which is perhaps a still better book. Its setting is the world of South-East Asia - and beyond. Its content reflects the wide experience of the author, who must be one of the most-travelled of all modern theologians. But what gives the book its special, compelling quality is the stillness, depth and humanity which can be found on even the most crowded page.
'Love has its speed. It is a spiritual speed. It is a different kind of speed from the technological speed to which we are accustomed. It goes on in the depth of our life, whether we notice or not, at three miles an hour. It is the speed we walk and therefore the speed the love of God walks.'
