Listening to China

Books and Culture has published my review of God is Red, a book about Chinese Christians written by an engaging, unbelieving dissident who has repeatedly got himself in trouble with the Chinese government. It’s quite a fascinating book with some dramatic and moving testimonies, and a tendency to subvert standard narratives of the Chinese church. Here’s my review: http://www.booksandculture.com/articles/2012/marapr/listeningchinese.html. If you’re not familiar with Books and Culture you might want to peruse it, too–it’s an excellent, intellectual journal.

One Response to “Listening to China”

    Having recently visited China myself, plus having bought God is Red to put on my reading list, I am looking forward to reading your review of it…which I will do when my copy of Books & Culture is hand-carried down from the U.S. later this month. I appreciate the electronic link to your article, but want to savor the reading experience on paper… 🙂
