Short description: 

Chow argues that Christians in mainland China have been constructing a more intentional public theology to engage the Chinese state and society, since the end of the Cultural Revolution (1966-76). He recalls the events which have led to this transformation and examines the developments of Christianity across three generations of Chinese.
