The Light Shines in the Darkness

There is more to China's story than its rise as a global economic power. The Holy Spirit has birthed a vibrant, rapidly growing house church movement in China's cities. For years, Christians in the West have heard rumors of house churches in the rural countryside with believers numbering in the tens of millions. Now the underground movement has emerged among China's upwardly mobile, globally connected urbanites--and there will be no turning back! In Christian China and the Light of the World, you'll meet believers serving God's people in the People's Republic of China. Learn about the political, social and economic pressures faced by the urban Chinese church, and find out how you can pray for and support your sisters and brothers in Christ who are following Him no matter the cost. Their true stories of the Holy Spirit's miraculous move across the most populous nation on earth will thrill and inspire you . . . and lead you to worship the Light that darkness cannot overcome.


Wang offers insights into the challenges and struggles of China's urban Christians and suggests lessons that their experiences may provide for the worldwide body of Christ. This book is both informative and brilliantly relevant.

Jon Davis, lead pastor, Beijing International Christian Fellowship

We live in an exciting new season. The center of gravity of world Christianity, which began in Jerusalem and through the centuries reached North America, has now shifted to the Asian Pacific Rim. China is the dominant nation there and China is destined to assume leadership for the Christian movement for the foreseeable future. This is a book that will enlighten your mind and warm your heart. As you read it, you will fall in love with China and you will begin to move into God's new stream for the future.
