Abstract
 
Description
Christians across the globe have watched and prayed for the persecuted church in China. Even secular media have run lengthy articles on the topic. However, despite our genuine concern, we're often left with more questions than answers. For example, what is the history of the persecuted church in China? When should Christians practice political dissent, and what are its theological and biblical grounds? According to Thomas Harvey, the answers to all of these questions may be found by asking another crucial question: Who was Wang Mingdao? Acquainted with Grief tells the story of how this evangelist and minister emerged from humble roots to take a dramatic stand against the state-sponsored Chinese churches. After twenty years in prison, Wang was finally released as an old man, securing his legacy as "Dean of the House Churches" in China. This unique book, rich with twentieth-century political and religious Chinese history, will fascinate anyone interested in Asian history, missions, politics and theology, and questions of faith and dissent. - from Amzon
