They started their works from a youth magazine. By stepping into the 21st Century, Breakthrough has developed to be a large non-profit making organization providing cultural and educational services for young people. This paper is to study the Breakthrough magazine from its founding in 1974 to its closing in 1999. The interdisciplinary study is based on Lucien Goldmann’s Structuralism Genetic as the main theoretical framework, while the library classification is applied to analyze the content of total 298 issues of the magazine. Research methods of cultural history are also applied for observing changes of the society in the decades. By adopting the mentioned approaches, this paper is to: 1) review the 25-year history of the magazine ; 2) observe the social and political changes of Hong Kong parallel with the content development of the magazine in the decades; 3) study the running of pre-evangelical publication; and 4) explore the identity of “HongkongeeChineseChristian in the post-colonial period. Breakthrough magazine now not only can be considered as a document with historical values, but also is the collective memory of Hong Kong people. What happened in the past of Breakthrough can be preserved as wisdom to help mankind shape future. Keywords: Breakthrough Magazine Yan-pui Structuralism Genetic Classification Pro-evangelism Social Care.
