Faith of Our Fathers: God in Ancient China

£24.99

Product description

Book is clean and crisp, with minimal shelf-wear and only a small dent in the bottom right corner of the front cover to distinguish it from a new copy. Pages are clean and free of marks. Includes many full colour pages with photographs and charts.

The burgeoning growth of the church in China is one of the stratling trends in Christendom in the 21st century. Now comes the even more starling revelation that these Chinese believers are not embracing a religion that Western missionaries have attempted for hundreds of years to plant on Chinese soil. Rather, the Chinese are rediscovering a God who has been a constant presence in their history and culture for more than four millenia. Chan Kei Thong in his extensively researched "Faith of our Fathers" presents many historical gems to validate this astonishing perspective. From his study of the most ancient Chinese historical texts, Thong establishes that the earliest form of worship in China was of a monotheistic God recognizable by His attributes as the same God Yahweh of the Old Testament. Through engaging and gripping retelling of some of the most significant stories in China's history, "Faith of our Fathers" reveals God's guiding hand upon the Chinese people from the very beginning of their existence. The Chinese language reflects knowledge of the first events of human history as told in the Bible.
