Nicolas Copernicus told us that our idea that the sun went around the earth was merely a prejudice concerning the way we see things. Actually, the earth goes around the sun. 500 years later 25% of Americans still believe that the sun goes around the earth. Jesus told us that our ideas concerning religion, justice, wealth, family, sin, and faith were just inherited prejudices but 2,000 years later the vast majority of people who consider themselves his followers still believe their inherited prejudices rather than the words of Jesus.


Dr. Yu publishes book review in Sociology of Religion

Posted by Fernando.Arzola on Monday January 4, 2016

Dr. K. Kale Yu, Assistant Professor of History, published a book review in the Sociology of Religion. The Spirit Moves West: Korean Missionaries in America (Oxford Univ. Press, 2015), written by Rebecca Kim, examines the interesting fact that the United States has received more Christian missionaries in 2010 than any other country in the world. Specifically, Kim analyzes the missionary movement of the University Bible Fellowship (UBF), the largest non-denominational missionary-sending agency in South Korea. In this insightful study that intertwines theological, missiological, and geo-political perspectives, Kim highlights historic ties between South Korea and the United States as the primary framework to understand the “reverse missions” phenomenon. 

For information on the book review:


Dr. Yu completed his Ph.D. from Columbia University, M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary, and B.A. from Clark University. He also received the 2015 Arts & Sciences Special recognition for his scholarship during the 2014-2015 academic year.
