China’s Reforming Churches

Publisher’s Description

China is now home to more evangelical believers than any other nation, and the church continues to grow and make inroads in every level of Chinese society. Such dramatic growth, against the backdrop of modern China, has produced profound and urgent church development needs. As faithful Chinese ministers strive to meet these needs, an increasing number are discovering the rich biblical and theological resources of the Reformed tradition and presbyterian polity.

This is a critical moment in the life of China’s reforming churches and the Presbyterian and Reformed mission to China. This book provides both a historical look at Presbyterianism in China and an assessment of the current state of affairs, orienting readers to church development needs and the basic outlines of Reformed Christianity in China today. While laying out the challenges and opportunities facing the church, the authors argue that assisting this reformation in China should be a central objective of the Presbyterian and Reformed mission to China in this generation.

Contributors include Bruce P. Baugus, G. Wright Doyle, Brent Fulton, Luke P. Y. Lu, Michael M., A. Donald MacLeod, Sung–Il Steve Park, Phil Remmers, David VanDrunen, Paul Wang, and Guy Prentiss Waters.
