China, Christianity, and the Question of Culture, Paperback / softback Book

China, Christianity, and the Question of Culture Paperback / softback

Edited by Zhang Jing

Description

Christian missionaries in China have been viewed as agents of Western imperialist values.

Yang Huilin, leading scholar of Sino-Christian studies, has dedicated himself to re-evaluating the history of Christianity in China and sifting through intellectual and religious results of missionary efforts in China.

Yang focuses upon local histories of Christianity to chronicle its enduring good. China, Christianity, and the Question of Culture illuminates the unexplored links between Christianity and Chinese culture, from Christianity and higher education in China to the rural acculturation of Christian ideology by indigenous communities.

In a distinctly Chinese voice, Yang presents the legacy of Western missionaries in a new light, contributing greatly to now vigorous Sino-Christian theology.
