In the United States, I wonder when or if we shall see signs that the great universities in our country are beginning to rediscover their Christian heritage. I wonder what form an academically fashionable Christianity would take. The meditation techniques of Eastern faith may be blurred into neuroscience and psychology, but what of sin and forgiveness and life after death which play such central part in the lives of those who follow Jesus. For many of us the academy and empirical knowledge replaced the faith and the church of our youth, but many of us may not be so sure now.

American Architect Writes Book About Working in China for Over a Decade
“The Tragic Kingdom or; Prisoner in a Chinese Theme Park”, (found on most book dealer websites; Amazon, Barnes and Noble etc), is a behind-the-scenes look into the field of design and build in China. The book is a profile of the personalities, culture, and psychology of the world’s most massive looming superpower as seen through the eyes of an ex-pat American.
“I have lived and worked in China for over 14 years, competing within their system, making my way as everything from a freelance artist in small operations to a senior designer for large corporations. I have witnessed a formidable decade in which China has commanded a modern presence on the world stage. I have participated in the planning, designing, and building of mega-theme parks in Beijing, world-class aquariums in Shanghai, gigantic malls in the Pearl Delta, resorts in Tibet, and panda relocation projects in the foothills of the Himalayas”.
The true stories and themes found in The Tragic Kingdom, spring from one man’s journey. At the same time they disclose truths about a globalization that eventually will impact every economy, lifestyle, and person on the planet.

Interesting…numbers and statistics have a difficult time getting the facts straight, however, engaging religious thought, and presenting Christianity in a non-intrusive way seems promising. Thanks.
Once if the Chinese government lift the restrictions on religions and their activities, the Christianity would grow much much faster. Even now a good number of people are getting attracted to faith and belief day by day.
Watching news tonight…CNN gave 25 million Christians in China with a population of one billion….that leaves 975 million non-Christians. Is that correct. CNN usually had good numbers. And does the Christians have a game plan, something that is extremely huge and highly worked/thought out with a very systematic approack to get the word out? I am so serious. I hope Our Christians think tank is full and working hard. Sincere…..Rushing, James. E.s

God is great.
He didn’t forget the people of China, and showed his mercy to his chosen ones. World, don’t envy the economic growth of China — see what God is doing in this country. Envy his grace.
