Handbook on Religion in China

Edited by Stephan Feuchtwang

Informative and eye-opening, the Handbook on Religion in China provides a uniquely broad insight into the contemporary Chinese variations of Buddhism, Islam and Christianity. In turn, China's own religions and transmissions of rites and systems of divination have spread beyond China, a progression that is explored in detail across 19 chapters, written by leading experts in the field.

Chapter 18: Rural to urban Protestant house churches in China

Jie Kang

Abstract

Outside the official patriotic Protestant association, meetings of Protestants in each other’s houses grew in number during the Cultural Revolution, and since then their networks have reached cities and turned into churches. Healing preachers in rural China become pastors from seminaries in cities. This chapter illustrates this process by means of a local study in northern China.
