      Book Description
      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?
