Jan 25-27, 2018 International Conference: “Christian Mind in the Emerging World: Academic Faith Integration in Asian Contexts from a Global Perspective”

Christian Mind in the Emerging World: Academic Faith Integration in Asia Contexts from a Global Perspective

    “Academic Faith Integration” is the integration of Faith and Learning. Besides seeking ways to embrace diversity in various global worldviews, Christians are also concerned with the discernment of truth, and are seeking integration of faith and learning, cross-culturally and cross-disciplinarily. But how can academic faith integration be achieved?


    Lumina College is a Christian institute of higher learning established in Hong Kong in 2015 which strives to promote a Christian perspective of life/ worldview in dialogue with other secular and global worldviews. It also seeks integration between Christian faith and learning in various disciplines.  In this conference, Lumina College Research Institute invites scholars from a wide range of cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary circles to present papers, especially those who are committed to opening dialogues, or are interested to learn about the possible integration between faith and learning in higher education from a global perspective, without overlooking the Asian contexts where we are from.
