Prospects for evangelization in China, including lessons from the past, a survey of papal documents on China, and a look toward future possibilities.

This book by a native-born China scholar includes detailed historical analysis and reflections on current challenges and opportunities for evangelization in China. Yan gives a Chinese Christian perspective on a complicated subject that is often misunderstood by Catholics and often not historically contextualized either by Chinese or Christian observers. He covers both the history of Christianity in China and the complicated current situation for missioners and documents unavailable to previous authors on this topic (including Pope Benedict's letter to the Chinese church), and also treats in careful detail the specific pitfalls and opportunities facing the church in China in the 21st century.
