From the desk of the guest editor.
The author describes the distinctives of Reformed churches as well as some of the difficulties Reformed churches in China have faced in their commitment to Reformed theology. He highlights three observations about life and ministry in China’s reforming churches.
The rapid rate of cultural change in China affects the delivery of theological education. While this makes Reformed theological education more challenging than previously, the Reformed tradition is taking hold and spreading throughout China today.
China’s house churches have a long history of defying Western expectations, and every indication is that this history—which is about far more than numerical growth—has not yet run its course.
