Good insight to reach the Chinese intellectuals for God Aug 31, 2001
My first impression when I came across the title of this book was that the editors/authors are dealing with issues that the Chinese intellectuals in general are concerned. It also attempts to build the bridges that could bring Chinese intellectuals to the gospel of Christ. However, I have realized that the editors are mainly dealing or focusing on issues concerning the mainland Chinese intellectuals, the American-born Chinese and the Overseas-born Chinese intellectuals in the North America. The editors begin with exploring the historical and cultural background of the Chinese intellectuals in mainland China as well as those American-born and Overseas-born Chinese in North America, with emphases placed on the modern China especially from the 19th and 20th centuries. The second part of this book deals with discussions about the strategies and models for evangelism and discipleship for the Chinese intellectuals. True friendship is one of the most important factors in reaching out to the Chinese intellectuals. The kindness, friendliness and willingness of Christian to go beyond surface level relationship will be the first thing that attracts people to Christianity. Long-term friendship also keep us from feeling pressured to cover all the gospel in one sitting, since we know we will have another opportunity to have another opportunity to converse with them. The effectiveness of evangelism and discipleship of these intellectuals are largely depended on the pre-evangelistic friendship cultivated. Chinese intellectuals are the most influential class of people among the Chinese community. To win them over to Christ is to pave the way for the whole Chinese community to accept Christ. We as Chinese Christian should take up this challenge to further extend the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus among the Chinese people.
