Christianity and Confucianism: Culture, Faith and Politics
- Monday, March 15, 12:00 pm EST
- Register by Sunday, March 14
Christianity and Confucianism: Culture, Faith and Politics analyzes 2000 years of cultural, political, and religious interaction between China and the West. As the world responds to China’s rise and China positions herself for global engagement, this major new study reawakens and revises an ancient conversation. As a generous introduction to biblical Christianity and the Confucian Classics, Christianity and Confucianism tells a remarkable story of mutual formation and cultural indebtedness.
Christopher Hancock will discuss his recently published book during this livestream event, followed by a response from Dr. Wright Doyle. Dr. Doyle is director of Global China Center, editor of Biographical Dictionary of Chinese Christianity, and co-editor of Studies in Chinese Christianity. There will also be a time for Q&A following the response. Participants will receive a discount code for 35% off for ordering the book.
