Bourgeois indifference to the lived lives of Christians? #dminlgp

Dr Dong Joo Kim (Hoseo University) is providing an academic review of the factors that led to the rapid growth of Christianity in Korea.  But he is also telling us the most amazing personal stories from some of the people within these institutional and social factors.

These are the most amazing and inspiring stories, of action, sacrifice, loss and investment for the Kingdom through the Church.  They remind me that we so easily analyse faith issues abstractly and do so from a bourgeois indifference to the lived lives of Christians in forms of church so different to ours.
It also reminded me of how I am trying to read my own church tradition through the lives of real people, using the Biographical Dictionary of Evangelicals
