Book Review: Christianity in Contemporary China: Socio-cultural Perspectives edited by Francis Khek Gee

Review of Religion and Chinese SocietyI’ve written a review of Christianity in Contemporary China: Socio-cultural Perspectives (New York: Routledge, 2013. xiii + 265 pages. Hardcover. ISBN 978-0-415-52846-7) edited by Francis Khek Gee, professor of anthropology at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore for the journal Review of Religion and Chinese Society (宗教與社會, Volume 2, Issue 2). Christianity in Contemporary China represents one of the few currently available volumes examining the growth and development of Christianity in China via socio-cultural methodologies. Given the ascendancy of this religion in China, the study of Christianity in China will continue to draw scholars and researchers interested in the broad issue of religion in the region. This volume also provides new insight via social-cultural approaches to Christianity where existing studies of Christianity in China have been limited to historical methods.
