The Church in Asia

The Church in Asia

“The Church in Asia” introduces Christianity in China from its entry in the 7th century to the present. From the very beginning, Christian evangelization has been a process of inculturation and of negotiation with other religious traditions, especially Confucianism and Chinese Buddhism. The on-going interweaving of Christian theology and Chinese cultural elements offers a special example of the diversity of the Church today. In this series we will explore the history of Christianity in China and introduce Chinese religions, especially Buddhism, in an open and accessible manner.
