Guest From the West

by Hugh MacMahon


  add to cart

Guest from the West recounts a life spent in Korea and China, exploring both the cultural and religious aspects of the East. What emerges is a fascinating insight into a different world, one in which religion and life are intertwined. The author, Hugh MacMahon, traces how his own thinking and behaviour were changed by his encounters as a guest in Asian society, and suggests that we in the West have much to learn from the East when it comes to open-mindedness, relationships and morality. While tourists, students and professionals have greater opportunities than ever before to sample the culture of the East, the author believes that long-term guests in Asia, such as missionaries, are presented with the best opportunity for deeper exchange, and suggests that with the challenge comes a great reward. Hugh MacMahon is the Executive Secretary of the Irish Missionary Union. Throughout his career he has worked in Korea and China, completed Asian studies in Ottawa, worked within grassroots communities, served in the diplomatic corps, wrote The Scrutable Oriental and managed volunteer teachers in China, all the time learning from the people he set out to teach.
