In terms of land mass, China is the fourth largest country in the world. In terms of population, it is the biggest, with 1.3 billion inhabitants. In terms of the global economy, the International Monetary Fund predicted that by 2016, no national economy would be larger. And even though China is officially a secular, atheistic state, no one can ignore the tens of millions of Christians that are an increasing presence in all sectors of Chinese society. Today, even a few Communist party leaders profess Christian faith openly.

 

How did this remarkable growth of Christian faith occur in a country that has been either indifferent or hostile to things Christian? Jesus Rising in the East is a highlight reel of one of the most remarkable chapters in church history. It gives readers a glimpse of two centuries of saints and sinners, successes and failures, setbacks and advances of the church in China. One cannot understand modern China nor global Christianity without knowing something of this amazing story.
