Ambassadors of Harmony in a Globalized World: A Theology in the Context of Contemporary China
This event has now ended. Please view this page to see all our upcoming events.
People in the West have many questions about the future of Chinese Christianity. Many are concerned that in some places in China, crosses have been removed from church spires. Many also worry as leaders of the house church and institutional church are arrested. What broader realities do these happenings reflect?
Prof. Ng will present recent developments in Chinese political and economic culture in order that we might better understand recent developments in the Chinese church. With the historical context established, we will consider what developments in Chinese theology could enable us to be ambassadors of harmony for the gospel of Christ in the changing context of globalization.

He is a prolific author who has published 17 books.
