A Book Review
Part of the World Christianity Series being produced by Fortress Press, this 2019 publication provides both a panoramic view and thoughtful analysis of many key issues in Chinese Christianity today.
History, Development, and Reception
Translation of scripture portions by Catholics began over 700 years ago; however, it was not until 1968 that the entire Bible in Chinese in one volume was published. The author follows this process across the centuries.
The Debate Goes On
In the 17th and 18th centuries there was a dispute between Jesuit and Dominican missionaries in China about whether or not Chinese converts should be allowed to continue practicing traditional rites and ceremonies that were rooted in Confucianism, such as ancestor worship. The Jesuits said they should be allowed; the Dominicans said no.
