In Jesus in Beijing, David Aikman recounts the fascinating story of how Christianity began in China (even predating Francis Xavier and the Jesuits), the bloody anti-Christian persecutions (especially under the Communists), the revival of an underground Christian movement led by brave men and women risking death, and the flowering of Christianity-though still under persecution-today with the result that China is actually producing missionaries to the world.
While China's Communist rulers hope to reap the social and economic benefits of Christianity without losing power, as David Aikman so provocatively points out, the Chinese dragon just might be tamed by the Christian Lamb. Few books change the way a reader views the world. Jesus in Beijing is one of those books.
