Product Description:
Many are the Christians who have been converted from a background of the Chinese Religion. Being first-generation Christians, they face many problems from their unconverted families. Help from Christian quarters concerning how to live the Christian life within the Chinese culture is hard to come by. It is hoped that this book will be of help to them. The Christian who is from a different religious background in which idol worship is practised may find this book helpful, too.
The Author

There are millions of Chinese overseas people whose culture is mixed Western and Eastern. Their languages are English and Chinese, with other languages spoken where they live. Chinese Christians themselves speak of the ‘Diaspora’, from the Greek word used of scattered Jews in Acts 8:1, James 1:1, and 1 Peter 1:1. Chinese people are scattered everywhere. This modest book deals keenly with the Chinese culture and religion as it is challenged by Christianity. The author’s apologetic explanations are well suited to the traditionalist Confucian or Buddhist Chinese who are exposed to modern unbelief from Western sources.
