   ISBN = {978-0-8146-4455-3},
   Abstract = {Illuminating Justice explores the call to social ethics in
             The Saint John’s Bible, the first major handwritten and
             hand-illuminated Christian Bible since the invention of the
             printing press. Situating his close analysis of The Saint
             John’s Bible’s illuminations in the context of
             contemporary biblical exegesis and Catholic teaching,
             Homrighausen shows how this project stimulates the ethical
             imagination of its readers and viewers on matters of justice
             for women, care for creation, and dialogue between Jews and
             Christians. Written for scholars, pastors, teachers, and any
             fan of The Saint John’s Bible, this book shows how beauty
             and justice intertwine in this wondrous illuminated Bible
             for the new millennium.},

   Title = {Translating the Christian moral message: Reading Liang Fa's
             Good Words to Admonish the Age in the tradition of morality
   Journal = {Studies in World Christianity},

   Abstract = {© Edinburgh University Press. This paper seeks to interpret
             Good Words to Admonish the Age, the most important writing
             of the first Chinese Protestant pastor, Liang Fa
             (1789-1855), in its complex relations with the tradition of
             morality books (shan shu). By doing so, the paper attempts
             to show Liang's subversive adoption of an existing social
             and religious genre that enjoyed widespread acceptance at
             the time. While Liang affirms the significance of moral
             values, he also distinguishes those practices held by
             morality books as meritorious from actual moral uprightness.
             In contrast, moral good for Liang is a result of divine
             intervention (that is, salvation) and a Christian duty, thus
             transcending the conventional purpose of earthly reward or
             securing one's own fate for blessings. In crafting his Good
             Words, the morality-book tradition forms an essential point
             of contact that Liang appropriated and adapted for
             delivering his Christian message - a message that is also in
             competition with the conventional moral view of salvation.
             For Liang, these moral tenets, which he still holds dear
             after his conversion, now culminate in a theological
             knowledge of God and his salvation plan.},
