Robert Banks in China

Professor Robert Banks, an Associate of our Centre, has returned from a month in Fuzhou, south-east China. While there he spent time with the staff of a Centre for Christian Research in Fujian Normal University and explored developing a link between it and CHCTE. At the invitation of Professor Wang, Dean of History and Sociology, he gave a seminar to post-graduate students on "Significant Connections between Australian Christianity and Fujian Province".

Seminar with Robert Banks at Fujian University

Acorn Press has recently (2013) published Robert and Linda Banks' biography of Sophie Newton, Australian missionary to China, who served with the Church Missionary Society. It is a quite exceptional example of its genre, with meticulous attention paid to context and historical accuracy.

Highly Recommended!
