Shanghai Faithful: Betrayal and Forgiveness in a Chinese Family

  • Starts: 1:00 pm on Thursday, September 14, 2017
  • Ends: 3:00 pm on Thursday, September 14, 2017
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. Jennifer Lin is an award-winning journalist and former reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer. She served as the paper’s New York financial correspondent, Washington foreign affairs reporter, and Asia bureau chief, based in China.
