Religions of East Asia
East Asia’s religions have been foundational to the political, social and educational development of many of its countries. Today, religious beliefs continue shaping the decisions and practices of people: Buddhism in Thailand, Islam in Malaysia and many others, including a growing number of Christians throughout the region. For many in these collectivist societies, one’s religion is determined by the culture and reinforced through family legacy. New beliefs lend themselves to syncretism as people search for a sense of fulfillment while staying loyal to cultural expectations. Understand East Asia’s peoples more deeply by learning about the beliefs that shape them. Pray for Christ’s love to meet the longings of billions who are still without hope.
