My Research

I love research. I am interested in many fields; but the following will focus on a few area: Biblical studies will occupy most of the information. Detailed information on all the available researches, including Biblical studies, can be found on my third site. The encoding of this site is Big-5 (Traditional Chinese), so if you are using other encodings, you may see some strange symbols. However, the English words can guide you (It is bi-lingual). Plus, my study are mostly done in English; but some are in Chinese only.

All my research can be found in my third site: The Magazine.
