Within the next decade, China could have more Christians than any country in the world. Through the 150-year saga of a single family, painstakingly researched by award-winning journalist Jennifer Lin, Shanghai Faithful vividly dramatizes the nascent rise of Chinese Christians and the remarkable religious evolution of the world’s most populous nation. The book, both a touching family memoir and a chronicle of the spread of Christianity in China, portrays five generations of the Lin family—buffeted by history’s crosscurrents and personal strife—bringing to life an epoch that is still unfolding.
