The book was partly inspired by Koyama's work as a missionary in Northern Thailand. Three Mile an Hour God (1980). Kosuke Koyama-A Model for Intercultural Theology: Peter Lang. The Oxford Companion to Christian Thought.

The book was partly inspired by Koyama's work as a missionary in Northern Thailand. His works of Mount Sinai and Mount Fuji and Water Buffalo Theology are, in part, an examination of Christian theology within the context of Thai Buddhist society, growing out of Koyama's missionary experience in Thailand. Mount Fuji and Mount Sinai (1985).

Koyama's relaxed confidence, extending from the chapter titles to the homely to-ing and fro-ing between the author's own world and the deepest themes of theology make this is truly stimulating book. One of the rare books of theology one can unreservedly recommend with full sincerity. What The Tablet said about Waterbuffalo Theology is even more true of Three Mile an Hour God - which is perhaps a still better book. Its setting is the world of South-East Asia - and beyond. Its content reflects the wide experience of the author.

Koyama claims the fastest God goes is three miles an hour, or the average walking speed. Indeed, God walks with us, not ahead of us. Three Mile An Hour God is broken up into four parts: personal spirituality, global reflections, national-level reflections, and call to social justice. He takes the best and most malleable parts, or makes them malleable, of Western theology - mostly Lutheran - and blends them with his context: Thailand, Buddhism, folk wisdom, and more.

He is, in the phrase of the theologian Kosuke Koyama, a three-mile-an-hour God. In her book, The Sabbath World, author Judith Shulevitz describes another unfortunate consequence of our hurried lives.

Koyama published at least thirteen books, including "On Christian Life" .

Koyama's work has been described as helping to bridge the boundaries between East and West, between Christianity and Buddhist thought, between the rich and the poor. Oxford University Press.

Talk about Three Mile an Hour God


Inerrace
I think the first chapter was the best in that it laid out the need to walk in relationship with the Lord and not go speeding through life. The rest of the chapters are short and with a point to them that makes various ones more pertinent to the reader than others. The title was a sermon in itself.

A series of short essays. I heard the author speak to a lay audience some years ago in Minneapolis, MN and this comments have stayed with me and moved me to order the book. I have given a copy to a friend who is a minister as well.

Not an easy read.
