Formatted abstract
The central focus of this thesis is a critical assessment of the polemical issues in Korea (religious pluralism and iconoclastic vandalism) from the biblical perspective of the book of Isaiah as a whole. This research seeks to present a full-fledged overview of how these controversial issues have driven the Korean Churches into a theological pitfall. It will also canvass how Isaiah's unitary themes - paradoxically characterised as both particularist and universalist - play a crucial role in evaluating these issues. From a Korean perspective, then, this study will offer negative implications not only for pluralist essayers who stoutly rebut the exclusive divinity of Yahweh, but also for naïve iconoclasts who are vigorously involved in the wilful vandalism of other religions.
