Activities were organized to commemorate World Book Day at the East China Theological Seminary.
On April 26, during the event co-hosted by CCC&TSPM and the seminary, Rev. Shan Weixiang, vice president and general director of the China Christian Council (CCC), gave a lecture titled "Shepherds and Reading," encouraging the faculty and students of the seminary to spend time alone with God and books, said CCC&TSPM.
As part of the event, CCC&TSPM presented a designed Bible exclusively created for the book fair at the seminary. Additionally, more than 150 types of books, including the Bible, spiritual literature, and publications on the sinicization of Christianity, were exhibited in the auditorium.
In the afternoon, a launching ceremony was held for the new edition of the Bible titled Trilingual Comparison of the New Testament in Chinese, Hebrew, and English.
During the book signing session, the book's editors Rev. Shan Weixiang and Rev. Xie Bingguo, president of East China Theological Seminary, shared their creative experiences and the stories behind their works in an interview with the host. Readers purchased books and eagerly awaited their signatures.
Furthermore, nine staff members and students took turns recommending noteworthy books published by CCC&TSPM, sharing their personal reading experiences. Following their participation in a knowledge-based question-and-answer activity focused on Christian books distributed by CCC&TSPM throughout the years, students received books and cultural and creative gifts.
