Now Reading...


                                         (With students at Faith Bible Seminary, Flushing NYC)

In anticipation of teaching in the Chinese seminary in July, I am now reading Faithful Disobedience: Writings on Church and State from a Chinese House Church Movement. (Thank you D.W. for this recommendation.) Arguably, this is the book to read on nonregistered (underground) churches in China.

"For Wang Yi, the conflict between his church and the state ought to be understood primarily, and perhaps only, as a spiritual conflict within a real, eschatological dimension. For Wang Yi, the conflict between Early Rain and the CCP is a conflict between the city of God and the city of man regarding who has authority over humanity and creation."
