‘Missionary Photography in Korea: Encountering the West through Christianity’

If you’re like me and have a keen interest in the history of Korea’s early missionary community, check out Seoul Selection’s recently released “Missionary Photography in Korea: Encountering the West through Christianity.”

Edited by renowned Korean history scholar Donald Clark and — who would know a thing about missionary history in Korea — and organized by the Korea Society, the hardcover volume is full of rare old photos, interviews and essays.

PS: If you live in New York, Prof. Clark will be speaking at the Korea Society on Oct 22 — copies of the book will be available for purchase. In Korea, Gyeonggi Suwon International School will be hosting a one-week exhibition of the book’s photographs from Oct 27.

    Korean Christianity is a miracle.

    While Jesus is leaving Europe and UnitedState, he found home in Korea and SouthAmerica.

    As England became the power house of the world through the power of Christ, in near future, Korea will be recieving God’s favor.

    God is poweful.

    Hi Robert, I took your advice and attended Professor Clark’s comprehensive lecture on Missionaries in Korea. The catalogue published by Seoul Selection looks good. Your pictures of historical buildings weren’t too shabby either. My hats off to everyone involved. :)

    Don, I believe, is descendant from Charles Allen Clark. He wrote a book about some of the first Protestant churches in Korea. The full book can be read here:
