Reviews

“This is an exemplary collection of chapters that explain the historical vicissitudes that have troubled China’s Catholic community for several decades. This volume will remain an important work on post-Maoist Catholic studies largely because of the quality of its scholarship but mostly because of the clarity of its analysis.” (Anthony E. Clark, Church History, Vol. 89 (4), December, 2020)

“This collection of informed, timely chapters edited by Professor Cindy Yik-yi Chu and Professor Paul P.Mariani, S.J., ably captures the evolving turmoil. Carefully detailing the thinking that motivated Pope Francis’ decision as well as providing context for understanding cultural complexities, People, Communities, and the Catholic Church in China offers precious background.” (Benjamin Ivry, America Magazine, americamagazine.org, 17 December 2020)

“This edited volume is a coherent collection of contributions with multiple layers of reading that provide a rich window on currents debates on Chinese Catholicism. Its content is as rich as it is diverse. ... this book provides well-documented and multifaceted access to most debates on the Church in China.” (Michel Chambon, Archives de sciences sociales des religions, Vol. 192, October-December, 2020)


“In this timely, informative, and insightful essay collection, Cindy Yik-yi Chu and Paul P. Mariani have brought together a team of experts to provide an up-to-date account of the Catholic Church in China. … In short, the editors and contributors have done a great job highlighting ma­jor historical, political, social, and cultural trends that are shaping Church-state relations and Vatican-China encounters. Their rich empirical findings and analytical insights should appeal to China scholars, church historians, and religious specialists.” (Joseph Tse-Hei Lee, The International Journal of Asian Christianity, Vol. 3 (2), 2020)
