The Focus for this book is God's manifestation of the human person (anthropos) through the ministry of God's Word Incarnate, Jesus Christ. This the author expresses with the help of the suffix phany (manifestation). Jesus' mission in the gospels, largely, was restoring the dignity of human persons in an integral sense, including the eschatological dimension. In the dehumanizing Asian situations, the author argues that Christian discipleship is a call to follow Jesus in his ministry of making the human person whole.
