On the Re-publication of Logos & Pneuma

Logos & Pneuma: Chinese Journal of Theology (Chinese: Tao Fong) was published in 1994. The Institute's former body, the Department of Academic Studies at Tao Fong Shan Chrisitan Centre, originally published this Journal, named Logos & Pneuma ('Tao Fong') as early as 1934, but unfortunately it had to be discontinued (after a few interruptions, due to social and political changes) in 1979, after having published a total of 57 issues.||From 1979 to 1994, the whole Chinese humanistic world underwent profound changes whereas Chinese Christian academic studies during the same period did not show any notable development. The whole field of Christian academics within the Chinese academic world was left to the discrete investigation by individual Chinese theologians and scholars of Christian culture. Reviving the Logos & Pneuma intends to give a new lease of life to Christian academic studies within this new Chinese academic context.

A subtitle has been added to the original name of the journal: Chinese Journal of Theology, the implications are three. First, Christian theology and culture must draw on the fabric of Chinese culture, history and thought as well as social experience in forming a Chinese Christian theological culture which has genuine Chinese philosophical and cultural flavour. Second, a Christian theological discipline must be construed within Chinese academical thinking which through building up a relationship of academical dialogue with Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism as well as the numerous modernist trends of thought, can make Christian theology an element of the Chinese cultural and philosophical system, as well as part of the humanistic pattern. Third, this is a shared undertaking by Chinese ('Chinese': HanYu!) scholars of religion, be they from the mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong, South-East Asia or North America.

The journal is open not only to Christian scholars of any denomination, but also to scholars with a background in other religions and to scholars of the humanistic and sociological sciences in general, but only for academically sound and earnest contributions within religion or theology.
