Item Description...
Salt and Light presents the life stories of outstanding Chinese Christians who, as early modernizers, promoted China's nation building and moral progress in the early twentieth century. Lively anecdotes and photographs highlight the strong character of ten pioneers in the modern professions of education, medicine, journalism, and diplomacy. These professionals were motivated by faith to introduce practical social reforms and build up China's civil society. They modeled and promoted virtues essential to social progress during the "golden age" of Chinese Protestantism. Their stories touch on themes important in today's global era: patterns of cooperation between foreign and Chinese partners, the contributions to China of Western-educated professionals, Christianity's role in furthering East-West understanding and exchanges, and the transnational nature of modern Chinese Christianity. The editors and authors articulate the importance of recovering China's Christian heritage as part of world Christianity.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Chinese Chistian Lay Leaders  Feb 12, 2010
"Salt and Light" re-opens a forbidden subject in Chinese history--indigenous Christians' contributions to China's professions prior to the Communist Revolution. A team of biographers has rescued these ten leaders from the "memory hole" of recent Asian studies, providing glimpses of the complex social networks that underlay the Republic of China.

No foreigners or clergy here. Instead, each short biography follows these Chinese Christian lay people as they move into the professions where their work had national and international implications. The research that uncovered the details of these ten lives, suppressed for decades, is impressive. So is the breadth of the experiences they represent: college president, peace activist, editor, obstetrician, UN delegate, and more. They move in a world that seems oddly familiar, as if China 100 years ago is closer to us than China 50 years ago. If that's so, it makes "Salt and Light" all the more relevant.

The annotated Table of Contents (available on this this site site) provides a quick synopsis of the lives described in this volume, the first in a projectd series. "Salt and Light" is sure to prove an invaluable tool as a new generation of "China hands" seeks to remember what the last generation tried to forget.
S&L review  Dec 14, 2009
This collection of life stories gives both layperson and scholar a look into the power and influence of individuals who influenced Chinese life and culture in the 20th century. As a Missiologist and China lover, I found it both personally encouraging and professionally challenging.I look forward to future volumes!
