Citizens of Two Kingdoms: Civil Society and Christian Religion in Greater China
Editors: Professor Chan Shun-hing, Professor of the Department of Religion and Philosophy, and Dr Jonathan W Johnson, Part-time Lecturer of the Department of Religion and Philosophy
The book examines the complex relationships of civil society, Christian organisations, and individual Christians in mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macau. Different authors investigate to what extent Christian organisations or individual Christians demonstrate the quality of civic virtues or virtual citizenship in the four regions, and reflect on the promises and difficulties of applying civil society theories to Chinese societies.
