Product Description

Christianity has a minority status in most countries of Asia. Peter C. Phan and his esteemed contributors give us a thumbnail sketch of its history and practices in India, the Middle East, China, Korea, Japan, Vietnam, Indonesia, etc. There are surprising commonalities, encouraging recent developments, and likely directions for future growth.

Christianity in Asia explores the history, development, and current state of Christianity across the world's largest and most populous continent.

  • Offers detailed coverage of the growth of Christianity within South Asia; among the thousands of islands comprising Southeast Asia; and across countries whose Christian origins were historically linked, including Vietnam, Thailand, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, and Korea
  • Brings together a truly international team of contributors, many of whom are natives of the countries they are writing about
  • Considers the Middle Eastern countries whose Christian roots are deepest, yet have turbulent histories and uncertain futures
  • Explores the ways in which Christians in Asian countries have received and transformed Christianity into their local or indigenous religion
  • Shows Christianity to be a vibrant contemporary movement in many Asian countries, despite its comparatively minority status in these regions
