Description

This title was first published in 2000. This study addresses the political participation of Protestant ministers in Hong Kong. It aims to describe and explain the pattern of political participation of these ministers. The book focuses on a number of key questions. What kind of political participation did Protestant ministers involve themselves in during the years preceding the return to Chinese sovereignty? How extensive was their political involvement? Why were some ministers active and energetic political participants whereas some of their colleagues were inactive? How did the activists see their role as Christian ministers? What impact did the political activism of the Protestant clergy have on the social, political and religious development of Hong Kong? Dr Ko's findings offer insights into the political beliefs, values and activities of a sample of the Protestant clergy of Hong Kong and into their thinking about their political responsibilities.
