To Paul Kauffman, whose book, China: The Emerging Challenge, was my early inspiration, and who was such an encouragement to me when we met in Hong Kong.


To others whose books have greatly helped me, especially Leslie Lyall's God Reigns in China, David Adeney's Christian Students Face the Revolution" and Carl Lawrence's The Church in China. Where I have been granted permission to quote from these and other writings, this has been acknowledged in the footnotes.


To various China Ministries in Hong Kong, especially the Chinese Church Research Center, Christian Communications, Asian Outreach, and Open Doors, whose communications have given me up-to-date information about the church on the mainland.


To David Wang for his help and encouragement, and especially for the transcript of a message on what God is saying to us through the church in China.


To Ross Paterson, who generously put his China material at my disposal and put me in touch with Tony Lambert. To them both for reading my script with great care and putting me right on a number of details.


To Alan Boardman for the map of China.


To Diana Moss for all her typing and re-typing.

Last, but by no means least, to my wife and partner in the work, Eileen, who has been a constant source of help and encouragement.
