Since adopting a daughter from China, I have developed a soft spot in my heart for China and the Chinese people. Note below what Gene Veith posted on his blog recently about conversions to Christianity in China.
According to this report posted by Michelle Malkin, 10,000 Chinese are converting to Christianity every day. And this in the teeth of persecution.
It would seem that the most dramatic and real church growth comes not from conforming to the culture but from standing up to a hostile culture and enduring persecution.
Michelle also cites a book by my friend and colleague at Patrick Henry College, David Aikman, who did the pioneering research on the Christian explosion in China: Jesus in Beijing: How Chrisitanity is Changing the Global Balance
