DescriptionDr. Jing (Cathy) Zhang took the position of Assistant to the Director at the School of Liberal Arts, Renmin University of China.
Christianity has had a long history of spreading the good news in China, but membership did not‚  blossom until‚  the 1980s. Facing the giant number and fast growth, many have wondered about the reason for this phenomenon, given the complicated political and ideological context in China. What is more, the differences and conflicts between Christianity and Chinese culture has always been a critical issue and major challenge for missionaries from Christian countries and converted Chinese Christians. This lecture hopes to compare several historical and present day cases, showing the changes in the relations between Christianity and Chinese culture and the new challenges for Chinese Christians today.
