Description

A bold and original study of German missionaries in China, who catalyzed a revolution in thinking among European Christians about the nature of Christianity itself In this accessibly written and empirically based study, Albert Wu documents how German missionaries-chastened by their failure to convert Chinese people to Christianity-reconsidered their attitudes toward Chinese culture and Confucianism.

In time, their increased openness catalyzed a revolution in thinking among European Christians about the nature of Christianity itself.

At a moment when Europe's Christian population is falling behind those of South America and Africa, Wu's provocative analysis sheds light on the roots of Christianity's global shift.
