Reclaiming Chinese religious identity

**If you don’t listen to Speaking of Faith with Krista Tippett, you’re missing out on a top-notch podcast on religious faith. Highly recommended.**


I’d like to share the latest podcast episode from Speaking of Faith where Krista Tippett interviews Mayfair Yang, a scholar and director of the East Asian Center at UC Santa Barbara. Mayfair Yang speaks about the effects of modernity and Christian (how ironic) Western influence and its oppressive effects on the indigenous religious expressions in China.

Although not a podcast on the Christian faith, the idea of Western cultural imperialism on the religions of the East is one that has been touched upon here on NG.AC. Even more-so, the effects of Western thought on the potential indigenous expressions of the Christian faith in east Asia can be inferred from what Dr. Yang shares.

Listening to this made me wonder what a truly Asian expression of the Christian faith would look like. That said, I personally believe it’d look much closer to our Eastern Orthodox siblings…
