Chinese intellectuals are embracing Christianity:
The growth of Christianity among intellectuals has fundamentally “reshaped the religious landscape in China”, says a leading Chinese academic and Editor of what is being described as the “most authoritative” journal on religion in the People’s Republic of China.
Edmond Tang commented: “Today it is an open secret that Christian fellowships â€“ a new kind of ‘house church’, run by Chinese professors and students, are active in most Chinese universities. More than 30 academic faculties and research centres are devoted to the study of a once maligned religion. The question is why.”
This is China’s best hope for change to a freer, more democratic political system.
