Review-A-Day

"In Jesus in Beijing, David Aikman, a former Time correspondent in Beijing, chronicles China's embrace of Christianity. Since many Chinese Christian groups are highly secretive, Aikman's book contains a wealth of new and important detail. The numbers touted by Aikman, who clearly believes that this Great Awakening will radically transform China for the better, are awe-inspiring...."

Publisher Comments:

Is China America’s Next Great Ally?

An unreported tectonic shift is happening in global politics — and it’s driven by religion.

Within the next thirty years, one-third of China’s population could be Christian, making China one of the largest Christian nations in the world. And these Christians could also be China’s leaders, guiding the largest economy in the world.

What is happening in China, is what happened to the Roman Empire nearly two millennia ago. The results could be astonishing.

Veteran reporter David Aikman, former Beijing bureau chief for Time magazine takes you inside this revolution to reveal some shocking facts.

In Jesus in Beijing, you’ll learn:

  • Why China might be America’s next ally against radical Islam
  • Why the Chinese believe that Christianity is crucial to the rise of the West — and of China
  • Why fierce anti-Christian persecution and covert government encouragement exist side-by-side in China
  • Why Chinese Christians see themselves as allies of the United States — and of Israel
  • How the Christian underground has spread — and won over key members of the Chinese Communist Party
  • The impact of a Christianizing China on global Christianity at large

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.

Review:

"Like the many observers who get carried away speculating about China's economic growth, Aikman proclaims that this spread of Christianity will ultimately change the global balance of power. But one does not have to agree with such a prediction to find much of interest in this book." Foreign Affairs

Synopsis:

Politics are being transformed by religion, namely in China—within the next thirty years, one-third of this potential superpower could be Christian.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 309-321) and index.
