Liang and ZhuGeorge interviews Andy about his MA research project, THE USE OF CHINESE LITERATURE AS A CULTURAL STARTING POINT TO PRESENT THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST.

 

Abstract

Common methods of Christian evangelism present a list of facts about man’s depravity and God’s act of salvation for mankind.  These methods are problematic in today’s mostly postmodern world that does not accept absolute truths.  These methods also use terminology and concepts unknown outside of the Christian faith, furthering the difficulty of communicating the Gospel.  This research project then seeks to find a well-known piece of Chinese literature that Christians can use as a cultural starting point when presenting the Gospel in China, eliminating the problems of a facts-based presentation of the Gospel.

Key List of Words

Chinese folktales, Chinese literature, Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai, monomyth, and storytelling evangelism.
