“Confucian Shame in Christian Thinking” webinar video now posted March 30, 2021

Last week, I led a webinar hosted by China Source titled “Confucian Shame in Christian Thinking.”

In the first part of the talk, I explain distinctive features of “Confucian shame” in contrast to other types of shame, whether social, psychological, etc. I explain some of the logic surrounding this view of shame, including its power to shame moral decisions and character.

Then, we’ll look at how this perspective of shame shows up in the Bible. Specific attention is given to Paul’s use of shame both in correcting churches and in admonishing believers to live Christ-honoring lives. Whenever conversations like these arise, people want to know about Matthew 18 and church discipline. So, I conclude with several thoughts relating to church discipline, honor, and shame.

Some Helpful Resources

In the webinar, I draw from a wide range of resources. In other to give proper credit as well as to help you keep track of the various books and articles, I list them below.
