1.1 Samuel Huntington’s “The Clash of Civilizations?” (Foreign Affairs, 1993 Summer issue), and The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order (1996).
1.2 The seven or eight “civilizations”: Confucian/Sinic, Indian (Hindu), Islam, Latin American, Slavic-orthodox, Japanese, Western, and possibly African.
1.3 Close identification of Christianity with “Western” civilization, even making the two almost identical. Overlooking the shifting of the center of world Christianity, and creating an “identity crisis” for Christians and churches in the non-Western world.
1.4 Huntington’s problem has become the more serious since “September 11”(including the US’s invasion of Iraq), giving, for instance, the very wrong and misleading impression that the current conflict between the West (led by the US) and the radical/extremist wing of Islam, is a “clash” between the “Christian” and Islamic civilizations.
2.1 Figures and statistics
2.2 The present and future trends
2.3 Russia and Eastern Europe’s Christian heritage since the collapse of the former Soviet bloc or Warsaw pact.
3.1 Recapitulation of Christian studies in the Chinese academia since the early 1980s.
3.2 The prospect of Christian studies in China is not very promising unless it is firmly established as a respectable academic discipline in its own right, and is no longer an “appendix” to other fields and disciplines.
3.3 The emergence of a young generation of Chinese Biblical scholars and its implications.
4.1 An overview of Asian Christianity, with special reference to the Korean Church and “Minjung Theology”, and its implications for “church and state” relation.
4. 2 “Liberation Theology” and the Latin American Christianity.
5.1 Indigenization, contextualization, and inculturation and its preoccupation with traditional non-Christian cultures.
5.2 From the traditional to the existential, with special emphasis on socio-political realities and dynamics (e.g., Minjung Theology and Liberation Theology)
6.1 Christianity will remain “foreign”, even “hostile” or “confrontational”, as long as it is still closely identified with the West, as far as the non-Christian religions/civilizations are concerned.
6.2 The shifting of the center of world Christianity from the West to Asia-Africa-Latin provides unprecedented opportunities for dialogues between Christianity and other religions, especially in Asia, where all major world religions have their origins.
