Reviews

"Every China scholar is familiar with the four attempts to introduce Christianity into China. This volume takes up the story of the missions in China from 1900 to the present, and covers such topics as local history, the ending of the civil patronage over the missions, the first six Chinese Catholic bishops, and Sino-Vatican relations. It is a 'must-read' for all those interested in the history of Christianity in China during the twentieth century." - Peter Barry, English editor, Tripod

"This book discusses a most complex topic. Its exceptional value is in that it presents a readable, comprehensive, balanced, and academically well-founded overview on the growth of the Chinese Church in Communist China. Well-known China experts from various disciplines present interesting views on aspects related to the general topic: history, religion, politics, culture, art, and indigenization. The reader learns much about the past as well as on the challenges ahead for Christianity in China." - Jeroom Heyndrickx, CICM, Founder, Verbiest Institute, Louvain University, Belgium
