Text Selection and Sample Texts for a Course on Christianity and Chinese Religions

(p.150) 10 Teaching Comparative Political Theology
Teaching Interreligious Encounters

Joshua R. Brown

Oxford University Press

In today’s global and higher education contexts, engaging Chinese language and culture has and will become increasingly relevant and marketable for theology and religion (TRS) departments. This chapter provides a guide for instructors not trained in Chinese religions or philosophy, but who can make use of a comparative course facilitating an encounter between Christianity and Chinese religious traditions. The first part discusses general learning objectives and intellectual habits cultivated in comparative courses, and three guiding principles for text selection. In the second part, I provide a concrete application of these principles by offering sample texts for a course on Catholicism and Confucianism, with additional insights for selecting texts for courses treating other Chinese or Christian traditions.

Keywords:   text selection, political theology, teaching philosophy, Chinese religions
