An article recently showed up in my email about the state of Christianity in China. I almost didn’t read it. I have heard about Chinese Christians before, but nothing to make me think they could do any more than struggle along against the various obstacles in that country. But I began to read it. And when I got started, I couldn’t stop.
Something important is happening in China that runs so counter to what one might expect that it sounds like, well, a miracle. And the miracle is remarkably similar to the one that turned the Roman world upside—down in the days of Paul and Barnabas.
But there is no Chinese Paul. There isn’t even a Chinese Billy Graham or Rick Warren. Christianity is not on television or radio, as far as I know. But there are now some 70 million Christians in China. How on earth did that happen?
