Reflection Questions
  • What should be the Christian’s relation to the sphere of literary and artistic products, e.g. drama, architecture, sculpture, painting, belles lettres? What should the missionary’s attitude be? If there is a difference in your answer to these two questions, explain it.

  • In what ways would you agree or disagree with this statement: Stories or statues of gods and goddesses can be deprived of their “potency” and become “just art.”

  • From what you know of classical Greek culture, Jewish culture (particularly as reflected in the Bible), and your readings on Chinese culture, what comparisons and contrasts can you draw concerning the attitude of these three societies toward science and technology?
