This study focuses upon how service in China changed Alabama missionaries, and the respect they gained for this ancient culture. The emphasis moves away from the failure of Christianity to change China and towards a new synthesis, neither entirely Southern nor Chinese, as the two cultures blended.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This study provides new perspectives by which to assess missionary work in 19th- and 20th-century China as well as the impact of such efforts in the United States. Not only do the authors delineate the complexity and difficulty of such work in the field with little understanding back home, they also trace the creation of both negative and positive impressions of Chinese by Americans and of Americans by Chinese and the impact or lack of it on US foreign policy decisions."--Adrian A. Bennett, Iowa State University
"A well-researched, insightful, and informative piece of work."--Alan Neely, Princeton Theological Seminary
"In one of the most balanced treatments of missionaries in China ever to appear in print, Wayne Flynt and Gerald Berkley present a scholarly but lively and engaging study of Alabama missionaries to China."
--Baptist History and Heritage

"Students of the American South have long been indebted to Wayne Flynt for the masterful way he addresses the negative stereotypes associated with poverty. Now religious historians are also in his debt. In Taking Christianity to China: Alabama Missionaries in the Middle Kingdom, 1850-1950, Flynt and coauthor Gerald W. Berkley offer a fascinating, nuanced look at life on the Chinese mission field."
--Church History
