Advance acclaim "Louis's work contributes greatly for those who wish to understand more about the great Nation of China. Focusing both upon the past, and looking to the future, this academic and personal reflection enables an agenda to form which commands response." The Most Rev. Dr. Sean E. Larkin, Archbishop, Province II (Europe & Canada), UAC W H Auden reminded us that "Man is history-making creature who can neither repeat his past nor leave it behind." In this stimulating book, Louis Ho discusses the need for Christians to come face to face with the legacy and ongoing influence of the Christian Church in China, a connection as long-standing as it is complex. Drawing on his own experience, and with a discussion of mission activities early and modern, this broad-ranging book offers a helpful survey of the many important issues involved. Dr. Earle Sharam, Dean, St. Stephen's Theological College, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada. A necessary look at how the West failed in attempting to bring the Christian faith to China.
