On the 3rd February 2024, three scholars of the University of Edinburgh held an event about Eric Liddell’s life and work in China, his legacy there, and the subsequent history of Chinese Christianity, worldwide and in China itself.

• Prof. Brian Stanley (Professor Emeritus of World Christianity, School of Divinity), ‘The Last Days of Eric Liddell and the Last Days of Mission Christianity in China’.
• Dr. Alexander Chow (Senior Lecturer in Theology and World Christianity, School of Divinity), ‘Chinese Christianity amongst the New Scots’.
• Dr. Mark McLeister (Lecturer in Chinese Studies, Asian Studies), ‘Christianity in China Today’.

Held in the magnificent Playfair Library, Edinburgh, the event was attended by around 160 people, with stimulating and informative presentations and discussion.
