Abstract Chinese Christians are growing in number-but are their beliefs compatible with Western teachings? Why does the Communist government look so favorably on a "foreign" faith? Has the Gospel become a tool of authoritarianism? This program searches for answers as it explores the startling ascent of Christianity in China. Outlining the persecution of Christians under Mao, the film studies a past split between nationalist Catholics and those who obeyed Rome; the differences between the Three-Self movement and the house church phenomenon; and the influence of poverty and migration on church membership. Leaders from Beijing's Christian Council, the China Christian Council, and other groups are featured.
