This sociological portrait presents how Chinese Christians have coped with life under a hostile regime over a span of different historical periods, and how Christian churches as collective entities have been reshaped by ripples of social change. China's change from a centrally planned economy to a market economy, or from an agrarian society to an urbanizing society, are admittedly significant phenomena worthy of scholarly attention, but real changes are about values and beliefs that give rise to social structures over time. The growth of Christianity has become interwoven with the disintegration or emergence of Chinese cultural beliefs, political ideologies, and commercial values. Relying mainly on an oral history method for data collection, the authors allow the narratives of Chinese Christians to speak for themselves. Identifying the formative cultural elements, a sociohistorical analysis also helps to lay out a coherent understanding of the complexity of religious experiences for Christians in the Chinese world. This book also serves to bring back scholarly discussions on the habits of the heart as the condition that helps form identities and nurture social morality, whether individuals engage in private or public affairs.

This book is about specific ministry needs or opportunities in China. It is perfect for missionaries who are serving or will serve in China to read, to get a better idea for ministry opportunities within China. Additionally, the chapters are very relevant for Chinese believers in house churches in China. Though house churches in China have spread across China and matured over recent decades, this book focuses on multi-faceted ways that house churches in China can continue to mature in their faithfulness to the gospel. This book has multiple authors, each of which is writing a chapter relating to their expertise. A chapter in this book written by author John Ensor is about doing ministry through anti-abortion pregnancy help clinics in China. Another chapter in this book, written by Elisabeth Kim, is about doing ministry through working in large corporations in China. These are just some examples of profound and practical chapters that are written by the authors of this book about ministry opportunities in China. Some of the authors in this book are mission professors in the US. Some are missionaries with various platforms and ministries in China.

Women make up the vast majority of Protestant Christians in China—a largely faceless majority, as their stories too often go untold in scholarly research as well as popular media. This book writes Protestant Chinese women into the history of twenty-first-century China. It features the oral histories of over a dozen women, highlighting themes of spiritual transformation, politicized culture, social mobility, urbanization, and family life. Each subject narrates not only her own story, but that of her mother, as well, revealing a deeply personal dimension to the dramatic social change that has occurred in a matter of decades. By uncovering the stories of Christian women in China, Li Ma offers a unique window onto the interactions between femininity and Christianity, and onto the socioeconomic upheavals that mark recent Chinese history.

This book offers a unique historical documentation of the development of the ambitious religious entrepreneurism by leaders of the Early Rain church (and later Western China Presbytery leadership), in an effort to gain social influence in China through local institution-building and global public image management. It unravels the social processes of how this Christian community with a public image of defending religious freedom in China was undermined by an internal loss of moral authority. Based on publicly available texts from Chinese social media that aren’t readily available in the West as well as in-depth interviews, it is framed by existing scholarship in social theories of the public sphere, charismatic domination in social transition, and the role of power in organizational behaviour. These churches’ stories show how Christianity, which has long been politically marginalized in communist China, has not only adapted and challenged the socio-political status quo, but how it was also ironically shaped by the political culture. This is an insightful and critical ethnographic study of one of modern China’s most famous house churches. As such, it will be of great interest to scholars of Religion in China as well as those working in Religious Studies, Asian studies, Chinese studies, and Mission Studies more generally.

This book offers a sociological analysis as well as a theological discussion of China’s internal migration since the marketization reform in 1978. It documents the social and political processes that encompass the experiences of internal migrants from the countryside to the city during China’s integration into the global economy. Informed by sociological analysis and narratives of the urban poor, this volume reconstructs the political, economic, social and spiritual dimensions of this urban underclass in China who made up the economic backbone of the Asian superpower.

The publication of J.C. Beckett's The making of modern Ireland in 1966 was a milestone in the modern study of Irish history. A new generation of students has since built on Beckett's insights and has added new questions and problems to the historical agenda. These essays represent the fruits of more recent scholarship. They have all been produced in response to the establishment in 1999 by Four Courts Press of a prize to honor the work of J.C. Beckett. They concentrate on the emergence of modern Ireland from the late 18th century to the 20th, dealing not only with traditional themes of political change but also less explored subjects including emigration, preaching, the role of women and the workings of the law. These essays reflect some of the most important work being undertaken in Irish history today and taken together chart some of the areas being developed in the new understanding of how modern Ireland was made.
