About this Event

Buddhist-Christian Encounters: Today’s Realities in Light of the Pioneering Work of Karl Ludvig Reichelt (1877-1952) in China

Presenters: Notto Thelle, Terry Muck, Amos Yong, Rory Mackenzie

An on-line event on Feb 24-26, 2021 (8 am to 11 am Pacific time on Feb 24-25, 8 am to 11.30 am on Feb 26)

Dr. Notto Thelle, whose father was Karl Reichelt’s closest co-worker, is completing a comprehensive biography of Reichelt (in Norwegian). Reichelt established deep relationships with Buddhist monks and founded the Tao Fong Shan center in Hong Kong for ongoing evangelistic dialogue with Buddhists. Terry Muck, Amos Yong, and Rory Mackenzie, all experienced scholar-activists in Buddhist-Christian engagement, will also interact with Reichelt’s legacy and Thelle’s analysis of Reichelt’s life and missiological significance. All four will also share their own pilgrimages in Buddhist-Christian encounters.

All who register for the event will have access to recordings of the lectures through the end of March. A Slack discussion group will be part of the lectureship event, and will also continue through the end of March.

This event is co-sponsored by: Frontier Ventures, William Carey International University, Center for Missiological Research - Fuller Theological Seminary, and the International Society for Frontier Missiology.
