Korean Christianity: As Seen from Global, Christian, Historical, and Missiological Perspectives

Dr. James Jinhong Kim, associate professor of missiology and religion and director of the Horace G. Underwood Center for Global Christianity at New Brunswick Theological Seminary in New Jersey, will consider evidence of possible Christian contacts in the very early centuries and their impact on subsequent intellectual crosscurrents, the unusual historical circumstances surrounding the introduction of Catholicism in 18th-century Korea, the interests of neo-Confucian learning particular to Korea at the time, and the global socio-political contexts, approach to church-state relations, and long-term missiological vision that affected the dynamics of the first Protestant missions to reach Korea in the late 19th century.
