Product Description

The origins of ancient China are lost in the mists of time, but Thong and Fu make the case that the language, writings, and actions of the first culture, known as Long Shan, show signs of a belief in one God.

Publisher's Description

While many consider early Chinese history to be composed of myths, fables, and legends, in Finding God in Ancient China author and scholar Chan Kei Thong believes that the language, stories, and rituals actually occurred during this time period and honored a creator who has since been forgotten in modern Chinese culture. According to Thong, after the division of nations at the Tower of Babel one of the groups journeyed across the Asian continent and settled in what is today the region of China. It was this group of people who established the first Chinese culture known as the Long Shan. And from this culture the first ruling dynasty, the Xia Dynasty, would emerge. Thong claims that the writings, beliefs, actions, and language conventions that were employed by the Xia Dynasty all point to a belief in the one true God; the same God who confused the languages at Babel and is today the God of the Christian faith. "Finding God in Ancient China is a remarkable achievement, a profound examination of China's cultural origins and history as a reflection of a continuous Chinese cultural sense of a connection with the divine. This book is already having a profound impact in China in a Chinese version. Everyone interested in Christianity in China should read it."

    I found Finding God in Ancient China a fascinating read of a period of time in China I knew little about. The authors demonstrate that the Chinese people had a relationship with God for many years during the period of the Old Testament. They explain things such as covenants and the Mandate of Heaven which are based on biblical principles. An index would have made it more useful but overall I give it high marks.
