Yang Huilin, China, Christianity, and the Question of Culture . Baylor University Press, Waco TX 2014, x + 264 pp. ISBN 9781481300179. US $ 59.95. China, Christianity, and the Question of Culture is a brilliant book by a leading scholar, and deserves wide readership. This collection of essays succeeds on many levels: It discusses key issues in modern hermeneutics and represents cutting-edge thinking; covers a broad range of significant topics; presents tightly-constructed arguments in a style marked by succinct elegance; pushes the frontiers of understanding by asking open-ended questions and offering tentative, but highly-suggestive hypotheses; and, drawing upon an impressive array of authors and ideas, brings together concepts that might otherwise seem contradictory. Yang Huilin, who is Professor of Comparative Literature and Religious Studies, and Vice-President of Renmin University in China, is well known for his leadership in the field of Sino-Christian Theology and Sino-Western studies. His expertise in both Western literature and Chinese classics, along with contemporary works in hermeneutics, equips him to explore the complex relationships among Christianity, Chinese religions, modern philosophy and literature, and cross-cultural communication in general.
