Jesus in Beijing: How Christianity Is Transforming China And Changing the Global Balance of Power
Is China America's Next Great Ally?
AN UNREPORTED TECTONIC shift is happening in global politics—and it’s driven by religion. Within the next thirty years, one-third of China’s population could be Christian, making China one of the largest Christian nations in the world. These Christians could also be China’s leaders, guiding the largest economy in the world.
Veteran reporter David Aikman, former Beijing bureau chief for Time magazine,
takes you inside this revolution to reveal some shocking facts. In Jesus in Beijing, you’ll learn:
Why China might be America’s next ally against radical Islam
Why the Chinese believe that Christianity is crucial to the rise of the West—and of China
How the Christian underground has spread—and won over key members of the Chinese Communist Party
While China’s Communist rulers hope to reap the social and economic benefits of Christianity without losing power, as David Aikman so provocatively points out, the Chinese dragon might just be tamed by the Christian Lamb. Few books change the way a reader views the world. Jesus in Beijing is one of those books.
