Each year the Centre for the Study of Bible and Mission invites a visiting scholar to spend some time at Redcliffe, contributing to the activities of the Centre. The Bible and Mission Visiting Scholar is usually from a non-Western context and is involved in the life and teaching of the College, as well as engaging in their own research.
This year we are delighted to be welcoming Rev Dr Lim Kar Yong who will be spending a month here at Redcliffe.
Kar Yong is a Lecturer in New Testament and Assistant Director of Postgraduate Studies at Malaysia Theological Seminary. He is the author of The Sufferings of Christ are Abundant in Us” (2 Cor 1:5): A Narrative Dynamics Investigation of Paul’s Sufferings in 2 Corinthians (London: T & T Clark, 2009); “Paul’s Use of Temple Imagery in the Corinthian Correspondence: The Creation of Christian Identity,” in Kathy Ehrensperger and J. Brian Tucker, eds., Reading Paul in Context: Explorations in Identity Formation (London: T & T Clark, 2010; and “Is There A Place For Suffering In Mission? Perspectives from Paul’s Sufferings in 2 Corinthians,” in Dr Tan Kang San (ed.), The Soul of Mission: Perspectives on Christian Leadership, Spirituality and Mission in East Asia (Petaling Jaya: Pustaka Sufes, 2007).
Kar Yong will be spending a month at Redcliffe contributing to a number areas of College life and learning, as well as working on his next book:
“I am looking forward to my time at Redcliffe, not only to carry out my research but also to interact with and learn from both the faculty and student community who have such diverse experiences from all over the world. I know that I will certainly be enriched from my experience at Redcliffe.” (Kar Yong)
