The need for a fresh impetus towards Asian Christian Theology is evident to all people interested in the subject. The present theological trend demands that any renewal of theology should primarily pay attention to two basic principles of indigenization and contextualisation, which means the Christian message need to be expressed in national and cultural patterns with liturgy, church music, catechetics, doctrinal discourse and the like highlighting national and regional features. Regarding Asia this cannot be done unless one is familiar with a deeper knowledge of Asian cultures and religions. The plurality of religions in Asia for example has been a difficult nut to crack even for Christians.Often the Christians in Asia are perplexed as they encounter so many different religions surrounding them with diversity of belief structures and outlooks.
