This major new study examines the history of Chinese theologies as they have navigated dynastic change, anti-imperialism, and the heights of Maoist propaganda
In this groundbreaking and authoritative study, Chloë Starr explores key writings of Chinese Christian intellectuals, from philosophical dialogues of the late imperial era to sermons and micro blogs of theological educators and pastors in the twenty-first century. Through a series of close textual readings, she sheds new light on the fraught issues of Chinese Christian identity and the evolving question of how Christianity should relate to Chinese society.
Chloë Starr is associate professor of Asian Christianity and theology at Yale University Divinity School. She is the author of Red-Light Novels of the Late Qing, editor of Reading Christian Scriptures in China, and coeditor of The Quest for Gentility in China.
