“In our culture there is a great deal of speculation and a variety of opinions concerning the Christian faith and what it teaches. The Essentials seeks to dispel the confusion and ambiguity about what one believes and what it means to live as a faithful follower of Jesus. This material is designed to engage the learner through a thoughtful study of Scripture.”

By Dr. Peter Au
This book is written in Chinese and published in two volumes. History of Christian Doctrines— East and West is the first volume of a series of three books based on an epitaph of a famous Chinese ancient historian. This book deals with all major doctrines in systematic theology and is structured in harmony with the Chinese mindset of epistemology, metaphysics, anthropology, pragmatism, and eschatology.

“Second-generation Chinese Canadian evangelicals inhabit a complex liminal space, positioned between the world of their parents and broader Canadian society. In this study, Dr. Enoch Wong explores the “silent exodus” of these Canadian-born Chinese from their parents’ churches, tracing their journeys to negotiate their cultural, ethnic, and faith identities for themselves. Utilizing both sociology of religion and leadership studies, Wong’s research engages Robert Greenleaf’s concept of foresight in servant leadership to examine the role of church leaders in mediating (or failing to mediate) these transitions for children raised in immigrant churches. This multi-case inquiry offers insight into the concerns of Canadian-born Chinese evangelicals and the cultural and generational conflicts that prompt them to search for new communities capable of understanding their identities and supporting their yearnings – whether inside or outside of the church.”
Dr. Enoch Wong has a PhD in Leadership Studies from Gonzaga University, Spokane, Washington, USA. He is Director of the Centre for Leadership Studies and Assistant Professor of Practical Theology at the Canadian Chinese School of Theology, as well as the Adjunct Professor, Canadian Chinese School of Theology of Tyndale Seminary, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
