What does it mean to "read with Eastern eyes"? According to Jackson Wu, an Eastern perspective is in many ways culturally closer to that of the first-century world. Cultural values of honor and shame, social status, tradition, hierarchy, and relationships are similar in both East Asia and the New Testament. As readers, we bring our cultural understanding and values to the text. Our biases and background influence what we observe--and what we overlook. Wu aims to help us develop our "Eastern lenses" in order to interpret Scripture well and gain insights we might have missed. InReading Romans with Eastern Eyes, Wu demonstrates how an Eastern perspective sheds light on Paul's most complex letter. When read this way, we see how honor and shame shape so much of Paul's message and mission.
