9789627706199: Ethical Reorientation for Christianity in China: The Individual, Community, and Society (Ching Feng Series, 17)

This book makes an urgent call for a reorientation of Christian ethics in China. Since the "reform and opening" policy was adopted in China in 1979, the country has been enjoying an improved standard of living and increasing freedom. However, the Chinese people are also experiencing many serious social problems, including moral decline. Unfortunately, the ethic adopted by many Chinese Christian is individually focused and otherworldly, preventing them from responding to social problems effectively. Thus Lin tries to trace the underlying factors, and propose a socially focused and this-worldly Christian ethics drawing on Christian virtue ethics, Confucianism, Chinese Marxism, as well as the ethical thought of the first-generation Chinese Protestant thinkers.
