“Daniel Tong has painstakingly produced a book which will, no doubt, be of much help to many
Chinese Christians who desire to share the Gospel with their loved ones and friends, but know
full well the immense complexities and cultural and religious minefields in the process.”
Rt Rev Dr John Chew
Bishop, Diocese of Singapore
A Biblical Approach to Chinese Traditions and Beliefs revisits the age-old dilemma many Chinese Christians face. Daniel Tong examines various cultural practices and beliefs, and provides guidelines so that Christians will be able to live their faith to the fullest while maintaining their heritage. Viable Christian alternatives to practices during major Chinese festivals, weddings, funerals and ancestral worship are offered, and sections on traditional Chinese medical treatments have been updated and expanded.
Illustrations and a glossary with Mandarin terms are now included to aid the reader’s comprehension. The author’s sound biblical and pastoral wisdom, combined with a rigorous understanding of Chinese traditions and beliefs, makes this book an important guide for all Chinese Christians.
