Christians in China: A.D. 600 to 2000
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 Chrina, 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.
