New Releases. China, Christianity, and the Question of Culture. 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.
This collection of some of his essays from the past decade is both erudite and stimulating. A vigorous and sophisticated cross-cultural discourse against the background of history, philosophy, religion, theology and hermeneutics. Yang's work is the product of a lifetime of careful retrieval and cultural assessment of the contextualization of Christian thought in China.
Each essay is a jewel of erudite scholarship. I cannot recommend it highly enough for Western readers who want to understand thinking in China today. China, Christianity, and the Question of Culture is a brilliant book by a leading scholar, and deserves wide readership. This is a significant book for Chinese academia that boldly interprets the Christian phenomena in a new way.
It reverses the traditional bias against Christianity, and may in fact inaugurate a more open discussion about religion in general among Chinese in the future.

Such profound insights touch upon the very nature of the Christian faith, and bear significance for all Christians, as well as nonbelievers, to rethink their relationship with Christianity. Altogether the book provides a valuable window for understanding Chinese Christianity. In his book China, Christianity, and the Question of Culture , with a fine scholarship in listing Chinese learning and the main Western contemporary theological positions, the prominent mainland Chinese scholar Yang Huilin shows appreciation for the approach of enculturation of Christianity into the secular context which is dominant in China today.
