The appraisal of a “Confucian imagination” and a continued call for the relevance of certain Orthodox teachings around theosis in contemporary Chinese theology characterize Alexander Chow’s new monograph on Christian voices in post-Maoist China’s public sphere.

Studying Christianity in China introduces an emerging academic trend in contemporary Chinese scholarship. Through qualitative interviews with leading experts in Chinese Christian studies, Naomi Thurston has investigated the ongoing conversation between China and Christianity.

As such, they are at the forefront of a novel force in World Christianity.
