China

Though Christian support organization Open Doors ranked China just outside the top 20 of the world’s worst persecutors in 2011, its estimated 67 million Christians make up the world’s largest persecuted church (and some place the number of Christians even higher). But in recent years, publication of Bibles and other Christian books has dramatically increased, thanks in part to government approval. Still, as the 2011 drama surrounding Beijing’s Shouwang house church illustrates, the government continues to constrict freedom of worship in many places.
