Editorial Reviews

Church Times - Lawrence Braschi
‘This volume helpfully outlines some ways in which imperial readings of the Bible and Christian history have led to the inexcusable importation of Western divisions into Chinese church life.’
Theological Book Review, Volume 24, No 2, 2012 - Beau Pihlaja
‘[David Pao’s work] opens a way to overcome missionary paralysis for fear of propagating or capitulating to neo-colonialism.’
Evangelicals Now - Ray Porter
“[After Imperialism] is good in pointing out the pietistic and dispensational views of many of the unregistered churches and the false Western expectation that the growing church in China has political democracy as part of its vision.”
The Expository Times, Vol.125, No.5, February 2014 - Andrew Kaiser
After Imperialism is thus best appreciated for what it represents: an early attempt to bring together two different conversations. Hopefully the participants behind After Imperialism will reconvene again soon, providing readers with an opportunity to appreciate more recent Chinese appropriations of global evangelicalism as well as the ways in which Chinese Christian identity can and will shape the nature of global evangelicalism on into the future
