Yeo's intriguing volume is an apologia for Chinese Christians. It articulates how a Chinese identity and a Christian identity can co-exist without capitulating to some Western or other cultural model of Christian identity. To be a Chinese Christian is to adopt a distinctive, unique identity that owes much to both traditions but is sui generis. Providing great resources for the construction of a Chinese Christian theology, Confucius and Paul converge across a surprisingly broad front. Yet, the Christ of the Cross completes or extends what is merely implicit or absent in Confucius; and Confucius amplifies various elements of Christian faith (e.g., community) often under played in Western Christianity. The Christ of God as found in Paul's Letter to the Galatians brings Confucian ethics in The Analects to its fulfilment while simultaneously protecting the church from the aberrations of Chinese history and protecting China against the aberrations of Christian history in the West. China can develop a distinctive vision of Christianity, and will fulfil its global mission if it can find its own authentic identity.The Confucian tradition within that identity will revitalize global Christianity. "This brilliant book confronts two fundamental challenges for culture and faith in the globalising world of the twenty-first century: how can the Chinese honour their rich Confucian heritage yet be transformed by Jesus Christ? And how can the church universal be reformed through its encounter with a Chinese Christian theology? Yeo's creative juxtaposition of core Confucian concepts with key Christian elements persuade us that Chinese Christians must not jettison their Chineseness. His sociological sensibility infuses the entire volume, engaging the most vexing social problems, offering nuanced theological reflections on the self, trust, civil society, social harmony, inequality, and political domination." -- TERENCE C.

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
