    內容簡介:
    武術是中國文化不可或缺的一環,武術的發展也是社會發展的側面。現時市面上的香港武術著作,大多聚焦武術本身的承傳與發展,鮮有從社會發展角度出發論述香港武術史。本書探析武術與香港社會發展的互動關係:一方面揭示轉變中的社會對武術帶來的衝擊,另一方面也探析武術對香港社會的影響。隨著社會的發,傳統武術已漸漸融入一般市民生活,發展成今天老幼咸宜、有益身心的體育運動。

    是次講座,特別介紹及討論新著「止戈為武:中華武術在香江」。本書以嶄新角度,介紹各門派宗師及歷史、武術宗師如何在港謀生,以至武館是一個怎樣的地方,展現武術與香港社會的互動關係。香港武術的興旺高度影響本地文化,各種媒體,包括電影、電視及漫畫等,都充斥以武術為主題的創作;而社會的發展,由經濟轉型、社會價值觀的轉變,以至政治前途的不確定等,都不斷改寫香港武術的發展。

    Is our Christian God exclusively “Male”? Can we image our God as “female”? Or, any other imaginations? If we do not use “Him” to name our God, do we worship idol?

    A feminist theologian Rosemary Radford Ruether said in her book Sexism and God-talk, “The liberating encounter with God/ess is always an encounter with our authentic selves resurrected from underneath the alienated self…Intimations of Her/His name will appear as we emerge from false naming of God/ess modeled on patriarchal alienation.” A group of Divinity School of Chung Chi College students display their understanding of God’s image in the coming exhibition “Re-presentation of God’s Image”, you are welcome to know, to participate in and to imagine with us:
