We are 12 restless individuals who have read Christian literature for years and feel that it is the same as Western academic literature: plagued with Euro-American perspectives and examples, therefore at times inaccessible. We seek to offer Singaporean angles on the Christian faith, with the hope that these local, Christ-inspired narratives shall shine like the morning light.
