A Co-Worker Responds to the 2023 Summer Issue of CSQ
I am truly grateful to China Source and to guest editor Robert Menzies and his fellow contributors for the 2023 summer issue of the ChinaSource Quarterly that focused on the Pentecostal church in China.
Changing Times, New Approaches
New religious regulations implemented in 2018 have caused churches to be shut down and foreign workers to leave. The author addresses developments in church networks and the emergence of churches with a Pentecostal identity.
It’s that time of year again in the blogosphere—the time to highlight the most popular posts/articles from the past year. Combining stats from our various original content publications (ChinaSource Quarterly, From the West Courtyard, and Chinese Church Voices), here is a list of what you were particularly interested in reading in 2015.
In its journey toward a theology that is uniquely “Chinese” the Chinese church has at various times clashed with longstanding cultural and religious traditions, weathered and responded to severe domestic turmoil, and intersected with a range of theological influences from abroad.
A Pentecostal Case Study
An author has noted that societies being shaped by the forces of modernization and urbanization represent fertile ground for the seeds of Pentecostal revival. Menzies supports this claim in a case study that gives us the history and growth of the Li Xin Church, a large, Pentecostal house-church network.
The editor's point of view.
