WU Leichuan and "Revolutionary Christianity"

Author: CHIN Ken-pa, Professor, Fu Jen Catholic University

 

Abstract:

Because he interpreted the teachings of Jesus as a manifesto of social transformation, WU Leichuan inevitably regarded Christianity as a vehicle of social, political, and economic reform, the ultimate end of which would be the establishment of the Kingdom of Heaven. Far from being works of localized theology, his two most representative books, Christianity and Chinese Culture (1936) and Mozi and Jesus (1940), elucidate his understanding of Christianity as a revolutionary institution, and explore in what sense Jesus could serve as a force of liberation in modern Chinese society.
