9780062078476: God Is Red: The Secret Story of How Christianity Survived and Flourished in Communist China

Chinese dissident author Liao Yiwu the once lauded, later imprisoned, and now celebrated author of The Corpse Walker profiles the extraordinary lives of dozens of Chinese Christians, providing a rare glimpse into the burgeoning underground world of belief that is taking hold within the officially atheistic state of Communist China. A luminous writer, and not a Christian himself, Yiwu offers a uniquely objective and insightful perspective on the position Christians occupy in mainland China, in a book that readers of Philip Jenkins The Lost History of Christianity as well as Peter Hessler s Country Driving will not want to miss.

Liao's coverage of Christians allows truth to shine in the darkness. That's the beauty of his writings. --Liu Xiaobo, winner of the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize
