"[By] Masao Takanaka and Ron O'Grady".
Includes index of artists, pp. 194-197 and General Index.
The Bible speaks universal words of life which are the same wherever they are read. But the context in which those words are read, imagined and interpreted differs from one culture to another. The slum dweller in Manila who has never seen a sheep has problems when told that Jesus is the good shepherd. How does the person whose staple food is rice understand the phrase, 'our daily bread ?' Out situation determines our perception; the cultural habitat of our lives gives us a unique way of seeing the world" [p. 7]. .... This brings us to the basis for selecting the art contained in this book. The Asian Christian Art Association decided to proceed with the publication of a collection of art works on the Bible with the provision that three criteria be maintained: 1. The art work must be of high professional quality. 2. It must deal with a recognizable Biblical theme. 3. It should have an 'Asian character' of expression. The editors set to work to shift through a mountain of possible art works. Well over 1000 art works were considered for publication and, after much consideration these were reduced to the final 100 art works which appear in this volume" [p. 10]. -- Intro.
Contents: Introduction -- Old Testament -- New Testament -- References.

"This book is intended to be a companion to my earlier book 'God is Rice' which was published in 1986". -- Preface, p. [ix].
This book "is a visual and thought-provoking exploration of spirituality in the Eastern Christian tradition. Throughout the world Christian ideas are expressed through local culture. In the East, and in Japan in particular, bamboo is a key cultural symbol. It characteristics -- shape, flexibility, eternally green leaves and hollow stem -- are interpreted in the light of their religious significance. The objective of this book is to stimulate ideas of the relationship between Christ and culture throughout the world". -- back cover.
Contents: Preface -- Bamboo as a Symbol -- Bamboo in a Christian Context -- Christianity in Japan Today -- Clean Wind and Bending Stem -- Strong Roots and Empty Centre -- Epilogue: Sounding the Bamboo -- Reading List -- Acknowledgments.
