Item description for Reconstructing Christianity in China: K.h. Ting and the Chinese Church (American Society of Missiology) by Philip L. Wickeri...

Overview
The story of Christianity in China in the modern period, told through the biography of one of its most significant and controversial leaders. This monumental work recounts a large part of modern Chinese Christian history by telling the story of one of its key protagonists-Bishop K. H. Ting, a public figure both revered and reviled-as he negotiated the path of millions of Chinese Protestant Christians from the triumph of Mao's Revolution until today. Drawing on unparalleled access to Bishop Ting and those who know him, as well as to archival sources, Philip L. Wickeri's research brings into relief important chapters of Chinese Christian history: the struggles of a beleaguered Christian minority, distrusted as a foreign religion; the bloodshed of World War II; and the turmoil of a revolution that waged war against every layer of society that stood in its path. K. H. Ting survived all this and more at the head of the Three Self Patriotic Movement and the China Christian Council. Wickeri offers a unique perspective on what that survival entailed, not just for Bishop Ting, but for a Christian movement that is today mushrooming beyond anything either Mao Zedong or K. H. Ting could ever have imagined.

Reviews - What do customers think about Reconstructing Christianity in China: K.h. Ting and the Chinese Church (American Society of Missiology)?

'''''''Rememberance of Things Past"  Feb 11, 2008
The subject of this book, K.H. Ting was the pastor of the Shanghai Community Church in 1945 when I met him for the first time. I wa a member of the U.S. 14th Air Force stationed in Shanghai at the end of WWII. We maintained a relationship since that time including my five viasits to China since 1973 and contact with him in New York in the late "40's. The book brought back fond memories of this friendship. It offers information that should be of interest to those wanting an insight to the status of religion and politics in China since the 1930's.
