Notes: Written by a team of internationally recognised scholars, this volume focuses on a church tradition that has never been very large in China but that has had considerable social and religious influence. Themes include questions of church, society and education, the Prayer Book in Chinese, parish histories, and theology. Taken together, the nine chapters and the introduction offer a comprehensive assessment of the Anglican experience in China and its missionary background.
