Title: Christians in China, A.D. 600 to 2000
Author: Fr. Jean Charbonnier
Publisher: Ignatius Press
Date Published: October 2007
Christianity first came to China by way of the Silk Road in the
seventh century, and ever since this great and enduring civilization
in the heart of Asia has been home to brothers and sisters of Christ.
Christians in China, A.D. 600 - 2000 chronicles the lives of the
Chinese faithful who through the centuries have been both accepted and
rejected by their own countrymen. It explores the unique religious and
political situations in which Chinese Christians, Catholic and
Protestant, have struggled to live their faith and give witness to Christ.
This major work covers each of the historic periods in China with a
focus on the development of Christianity and its cultural interaction
in each period. It shows the evolution of Christianity as it occurred
within the People's Republic of China. While telling the stories of
various Christians throughout Chinese history, the author tries to
answer a few key questions. They are: How the did the Church develop
over many centuries in a culture so different from ours? How do
Christians in China give witness to their faith? How do they
contribute to the life of the universal Church?
