Jesus in Asia

In this recent piece for The New York Review of Books I review R.S. Sugirtharajah's wonderfully erudite and fascinating "Jesus in Asia" (Harvard University Press) that recounts Asian thinkers' efforts to disentangle Jesus from colonialism.
This book is full of rich and fascinating stories and ways of looking at Jesus. I  found it great read, although had some caveats, especially on the China material, where I think he's less strong.
