Christian Encounters with Chinese Culture


Ruiwen CHEN

Hong Kong University Press

Ruiwen Chen and Philip Wickeri adopt a “contextualization” approach to parish history in their study of the first three decades of St. Mary’s in Chapter 7. They consider the role of both clergy and laity in responding to social needs as they shaped a church whose ministry, mission and even architecture embraced elements of the Chinese cultural and social context.
