All of these topics have been chosen by the various people at the universities (and academy) in question, so what intrigues me is what they see as relevant for Chinese debates.

  1. Wow, it seems that Prof. Boer will be a big star in Mainland China. Hope there would be chance that you might come to Hong Kong also. I am from mainland but is now studying Chinese Christianity, the Bible and Images of Jesus in the early 20th Century in Chinese University of Hong Kong.

  2. I guess the reason why there are only two Universities choosing the topic directly related to the Bible is that Henan Univ. and Sichuan Univ. seems to be relatively more interested in biblical studies with scholars working on it, for example, Prof. Liang Gong from Henan Univ.
