Notre Dame Press Partners with Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies on Two New Titles

In partnership with the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies, the University of Notre Dame Press is proud to announce the publication of two new titles in the Liu Institute Series in Chinese Christianities: Following Christ and Confucius: Wang Mingdao and Chinese Christianity by Christopher Payk, chaplain at Morrison Academy Taipei in New Taipei City, Taiwan, and Protestant Missionaries in China: Robert Morrison and Early Sinology by Jonathan A. Seitz, associate professor at Taiwan Graduate School of Theology in Taipei, Taiwan, and mission co-worker with the Presbyterian Church (USA).

Following Christ and Confucius is the first full-length critical biography and theological analysis of Wang Mingdao, the spiritual father of China’s House Church Movement. Richard R. Cook, author of Darkest before the Dawn, declares this book a “thorough telling of the story of one of the most prominent Chinese church leaders of the twentieth century.”

With a focus on Robert Morrison, Protestant Missionaries in China evaluates the role of nineteenth-century British missionaries in the early development of the cross-cultural relationship between China and the English-speaking world. “Jonathan A. Seitz’s book is a much-needed and timely study that seeks to critically understand the ideas of the earliest Protestant missionaries to China,” says Christopher A. Daily, author of Robert Morrison and the Protestant Plan for China.

Both books are available for sale directly from the University of Notre Dame Press at undpress.nd.edu or wherever books are sold.
