Can Christians use Chinese Medicine?
This is one of the most common questions asked about Chinese culture. Some Christians esteem it as a 2,000-year-old medical heritage that is still useful in our everyday lives. Others regard it as tainted by non-Christian religious ideas and should be avoided. How then should we understand Chinese medicine?
To answer this question, Dr Lai will bring Chinese medicine into dialogue with modern medicine, and evaluate both traditions from biblical, theological and philosophical perspectives.
