Seminar: Will Asian Christianity Blossom or Wither?
Date: Thursday - Aug 23, 2012
Time: 1:00pm - 3:00pm
Location: Tyndale - Room 1008
What is the future of Christianity in Asia? With special reference to the challenges of building mission minded communities within the heartlands of religions in Asia such as China, India, Pakistan, and Malaysia, this seminar will introduce crucial missiological issues when serving in Buddhist, Hindu and Muslim countries. Compared to Latin America and Africa, why was Evangelical mission less ‘successful’ in Asia? A case study on ‘Encountering Chinese Intellectuals and Worldview’ may throw some light on that probing question. Some contemporary implications for multicultural witness in Canada will also be explored.
