Reviews

"There is no book on Chinese Christianity quite like this absorbing and thought-provoking study."--Ryan Dunch"Harvard Journal of Asiatic Studies" (12/01/2014)
"[A] splendid book. . . . It's fascinating to see how Catholic Christianity became fully integrated into the life of [a Chinese] village."-- (11/01/2013)
