In a culture that embodies long literary traditions and possesses rich classical texts that have constituted a pluralistic religious world, how is the Christian Bible read and received in China?

Through case studies on the biblical writings and commentary works made by Chinese Christians and western missionaries in the history of Christianity in China, this lecture will map out the spectrum of Chinese interpretation of the Bible, giving a more comprehensive understanding of its reception in the context of Chinese culture. Dr. Hui Liang will identify some typical hermeneutical traits, which we may call the “Chinese” reading of the Bible, concluding by reflecting on the ways the hermeneutic traditions in Chinese culture have affected the reception of Christian scriptures among Chinese converts.

The lecture aims to contribute to the understanding of cross-cultural hermeneutics and promote the ongoing dialogue between the East and the West.

Dr. Hui Liang, Ph.D. (Zhejiang University,co-supervised with Regent College), Postdoctoral Fellow (Bar-Ilan University), Th.M. (Western Theological Seminary), is a core member of the Key Institute of Christianity and Cross-cultural Studies, Zhejiang University, Ministry of Education of the P. R. China. Her research interests are in areas of the Hebrew Bible and Chinese biblical interpretation. She has published more than 40 papers and several monographs on biblical studies, especially on Chinese biblical reading.Playing an important role on Chinese biblical studies, she has been invited to read many papers and delivered lectures on Chinese biblical interpretation abroad.
