Hands and Feet


Hands and Feet
Political Movements for Local Members of Christ’s Global Body

Hwa Yue-Yi
Edited by Joshua Woo & Soo-Inn Tan

“What do a fruit cart, a 93-year-old concentration camp survivor, and Dataran Merdeka have in common? Not the punch line of a bad joke, but the fact that they were all players in the wave of protests that swept the globe in 2011. Given the variety of overlapping international movements, national political campaigns, and urgent local issues competing for our attention, how should each of us decide what to engage in at a particular point?”

In 2011, we published a collection of essays that explores some common issues that arise when we relate the Christian faith with politics — The Bible and the Ballot: Reflections on Christian Political Engagement in Malaysia Today. It opened up discussion ranging from democracy, political preaching, discerning prayer, wisdom to vote, and Christian’s participation in social issues.

Christianity & Citizenship is a follow-up series that focuses on Christians’ participation as citizens. Like the previous series, the present one is also a collective effort by Christians from different parts of the theological spectrum.

Good theological reflection should always be a dialogue between the Scriptures and the critical issues of the day. It should also be done in community so that in conversation, we see clearer how the Word of God bears on our concerns. Our goal in presenting this series of essays is not merely to deepen our understanding. We also hope they will yield insights for how we ought to live.
