Christianity in China

I’m going to cheat, and mostly merely post a link to a long article on the state of Christianity in China from the Economist. However I find it interesting to note that the growth there is associated with a lack of involvement in politics – enforced by the nature of the regime; it is my perception – which I’m hoping one day to use as the basis of my PhD thesis – that the over involvement of the church in politics in an attempt to be ‘relevant’ is usually a sign that a church has lost its emphasis on ‘making disciples of all nations’.
