This book provides a concise description and analysis of the development of religious thought in China.
It proves that a deep understanding of China’s whole historical, political and spiritual development is vital to those aiming to work successfully in China today or with Chinese people around the world.
Starting from earliest times, it ends with live questions as to the possible emergence of Christianity in contemporary Chinese public and political arenas, as they exhibit unprecedented openness and flexibility.
