Item description for Changing Church and State Relations in Hong Kong, 1950-2000 (Hong Kong Culture and Society Series) by Beatrice Leung & Shun-Hing Chan...

Church-State relations have been an inseparable part of Hong Kong's history. Using the methods and concepts from the study of Church-State relations in the West, this book investigates the relationship between the state and society at large in Hong Kong, between 1950 and 2000, aiming to fill some blanks in history. It suggests that the early role of the Catholic and Protestant churches was that of 'contractor' or 'deputy' to the government, which limited the churches' capacity to adopt the role of 'prophet'. Over the years, this uneven power relationship changed as some Christian groups began to adopt the role of prophet by monitoring and criticizing the government. This helped to facilitate social and political reform and reveals how the churches advanced the process of democratization and the building of a civil society in Hong Kong.
