Wang Mingdao's Stand for the Persecuted Church in China

Book - 2002
Rate this:
For decades, Christians across the globe have watched and prayed for the persecuted church in China. Despite our genuine concern, we're often left with more questions than answers. For example, what is the history of the persecuted church in China? How are Christians being treated in China today? What can Western Christians do to best support the church in China?

According to Thomas Harvey, the answers to all of these questions may be found by asking another crucial question: Who was Wang Mingdao? Acquainted With Grief tells the story of how this evangelist and minister emerged from humble roots to take a dramatic stand against Maoism and the state-sponsored Chinese churches. After twenty years in prison, Wang was finally released as an old man, securing his legacy as "Dean of the House Churches" in China.

This unique book, rich with twentieth-century Chinese religious history, will fascinate anyone interested in Asian history, missions, politics and theology, and the treatment of Christians in China.
