BOOK LAUNCH OF A CHRISTIAN PERSPECTIVE ON CHINESE MEDICINE BY DR LAI PAK WAH

Can Christians use Chinese medicine?

This is one of the most common questions asked about Chinese culture.

Some Christians esteem Chinese medicine to be 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.

Dr Lai is Principal & Lecturer of Church History and Historical Theology at the Biblical Graduate School of Theology. He also wrote The Dao of Healing: Christian Perspectives on Chinese Medicine.

About the Organiser:
Seminari Theoloji Malaysia (STM) came into existence as a joint Anglican, Evangelical Lutheran and Methodist venture in January 1979. For Anglicans and Evangelical Lutherans, this marked a further stage in their co-operation in theological education in Malaysia, which had earlier included the Christian Training Centre and Kolej Theoloji Malaysia. More than 700 graduands have passed through the doors of the seminary and are serving in different parts of Malaysia and beyond.

Biblical Graduate School of Theology (BGST) is a theological institution that seeks to help Christians and the church reflect theologically and holistically on what is going on in the world.

It offers a thorough and systematic study programme for lay people to help them live out their Christian faith in their vocations and be more effective in serving God, emphasising not only the development of biblical and theological knowledge, but also the acquisition of analytical, critical and integrative skills in interpreting Scriptures.

Graceworks is a ministry that promotes relational transformation in the church and society through training, mentoring and publishing. In training, they quip people to live out relationally healthy lives in the church and in the world. In mentoring, they train mentors and run mentoring groups to help followers of Jesus grow in Christlikeness. In publishing, they bring to life books that promote spiritual friendships and connect the Word of God with the issues of daily life.
