"This is the most comprehensive treatment ever written of the history of the Protestant Church in China over the last forty years. The author takes an unprecedented look at one of the most turbulent periods in Chinese history-the years from 1949 to the present. After an overview of church, Marxism, and Christianity in China, he discusses the united front. He focuses on ideology, organization, and religious policy. Wickeri then explores the Three-Self Movement as both a Chinese and a Christian movement. His conclusion: the Three-Self Movement, despite problems, has made Christianity more accessible to the average Chinese and the church more acceptable to Chinese society." Not Price Clipped.
