Item Description...
This pathbreaking volume will force a reassessment of many common assumptions about the relationship between Christianity and modern China. The overall thrust of the twenty essays is that despite the conflicts and tension that often have characterized relations between Christianity and China, in fact Christianity has been, for the past two centuries or more, putting down roots within Chinese society, and it is still in the process of doing so. Thus Christianity is here interpreted not just as a Western religion that imposed itself on China, but one that was becoming a Chinese religion, as Buddhism did centuries ago.
Eschewing the usual focus on foreign missionaries, as is customary, this research effort is China-centered, drawing on Chinese sources, including government and organizational documents, private papers, and interviews. The essays are organized into four major sections: Christianity's role in Qing society, including local conflicts (6 essays); ethnicity (3 essays); women (5 essays); and indigenization of the Christian effort (6 essays). The editor has provided sectional introductions to highlight the major themes in each section, as well as a general Introduction.

Reviews - What do our customers think?

Indigenous Chinese Christianity  Sep 6, 2004
This book is a collection of case studies and papers by major Chinese church history scholars. One section, ¡°The Rise of Indigenous Chinese Christianity¡±, is of particular interest to those who want to study the rise of local Christian leadership in China. Since the days of the first Protestant missionaries in the early 19th century (i.e. Gutzlaff and Morrison), foreign missionaries knew and wanted to implement the ¡°Apostolic Strategy¡± of empowering the indigenous Christians to take ownership and to enabling them to lead. But the history tells us that this is easier said than done. Their failure to ¡°let go¡± added fuel to fire as anti-foreign and anti-imperialist sentiments and than anti-Western feelings exploded indiscriminately. Unable to distinguish between Western and Christian, these feelings culminated in the Boxer Rebellion in the early twentieth century during which hundreds of missionaries were murdered and later in the communist backlash against missionaries which is still felt even today.
