Changing Paradigms in Chinese Christian Higher Education (1888-1950)
|Author: ||Ng, Peter Tze Ming|
This volume features two scholars from China and two from Hong Kong. They represent an international outlook on the set of problems they address. The contribution of this work is to highlight a few significant aspects of Christian higher education in China during the Republican Period (1912-1949, especially the fading of religious and theological education, and the paradoxical growth at some of these foreign-established institutions of high quality academic programs in Chinese studies.
“Individually and collectively, their effort is significant: to reconsider the role that Christian colleges played in the modern history of Chian.
“...this present volume on aspects of Christian higher education in china will also contribute to a wider discussion of the evolution of Christian colleges worldwide.”
