Reviews - What do customers think about Christianity in Today's China: Taking Root Downward, Bearing Fruit Upward?

Memories Revisited  Mar 1, 2001
This is an exciting story of Christian growth in China with special emphasis on the last two decades. The author's use of well documented historical sources, interviews and short autobiographical comments gives the reader a sense of what it is like to go through trials and tribulations. For those who have been there during this period, it is especially exciting to once again recall experiences shared with some of the many, many sources provided.

The factual presentation covers so many areas of China, one may find it necessary to have a map close by. But it is this experience in many parts of China that gives credence to the author's strong believe in Christianity's compatibility with the China Christian Council. Some may not adhere to this, but his point that Jesus' message was not "anti-Roman" and that same message today is not "anti-Communist" has a sure foundation.

Additionally, for those planning a visit or considering the support of missionaires in China, the chapter on, "Most Frequently Asked Questions," should not be overlooked. And those from small towns, like Brownwood, will surely relate to the incident on Third Street and Brady Avenue, when expeiences of peasant Christians or "little flock" congregations are related.

The presentation is decidely "inward" looking. Therefore, it is entirely reasonable to reach different conclusions when one is looking from an "outward" perspective. For example, this reviewer knows from personnal correspondence that radio has been effective, in selective instances, in bringing the Message of Christ to China.

The generous use of references alone is sufficient justification to make this a book one must have in their library. But more than that. It is a source of information every bit is good as the Travel Guide most of us take with us in our overseas travels.
