"As China continues to aggressively urbanize so does the church. This book provides well-considered, insightful information that helps those of us on the outside looking in to better understand the true state of the present-day church in China. A tremendous update that truly informs."
--Marvin J. Newell, Missio Nexus
"The daily reality for Chinese Christians has completely changed and yet many in the West are still viewing the situation through an outdated lens. No one knows this better than Brent Fulton, who has spent a lifetime engaged with the subject. Fulton presents the rapidly changing church as it actually is. China's Urban Christians,/i> is compulsory reading for anyone trying to understand this extraordinary moment in the history of the global church."
--Rob Gifford, correspondent for The Economist, author of China Road
"Looking beyond tensions between church and the Chinese Communist Party-state, this book superbly draws together scholarship and firsthand interviews in a highly readable fashion to present how today's most innovative Chinese Protestants are grappling with a wide range of complex issues. It shows that Christianity in China is far more nuanced than common black-and-white depictions of church-state conflict, even more complex than subtle grays could capture. If you read this book, you will marvel at the dazzling colors of a church in transformation."
