The Asian/Asian American Pacific Islander Church Studies program is hosting  “Christian Interculture: Text and Voices from Colonial and postcolonial worlds” with Rev. Dr. Arun Jones, Dan and Lilian Hankey Associate Professor of World Evangelism at Candler School of Theology, Emory University. The colloquy is open to the Brite Community. To obtain a copy of Rev. Dr. Jones’ article, please email Sihun Jang at sihun.jang@tcu.edu

The Rev. Dr. Arun W. Jones grew up in India, where his parents served as Methodist missionaries for over four decades. After college he spent four years in the Philippines, working in both ecclesial and secular non-governmental organizations. His scholarship has grown out of his life and experience in South and Southeast Asia, where he was immersed in a variety of cultural, religious and socio-political contexts. Trained as a historian, he investigates how Christians have appropriated and spread their faith in Asian contexts, especially in the era of European and American imperialism.

Rev. Dr. Jones will also be in Chapel Service and Community Conversation on Tuesday, March 28.
