Song-Chong Lee, Ph.D., associate professor of religion at University of Findlay, recently served as a guest editor for a special journal issue focusing on Korean religion.
Titled “The Role and Meaning of Religion for Korean Society,” the issue in Religions covers a wide-ranging time-period and explores four main characteristics of Korean religion: creativity, greater responsiveness, adaptability, and prophethood.
“Religion is one of the most effective human reactions to cope with various challenges of life,” Lee writes in the issue’s introduction. “Like other major players, such as family and government, religion plays a powerful role in swinging the pendulum of our destinies between hope and despair, between liberation and enslavement, and between forgiveness and vengeance. There would be arguably no better place than Korea for finding exemplary cases, memories and narratives.”
