The first half of the twenty-first century promises to be a time of great change for the Christian church in the People's Republic of China. The situation is complex and fluid, and the information gap between those on the inside and those outside of China is still significant, though shrinking. The "Inscrutably Chinese" Church moves readers nearer to the Chinese Christian experience, as Nathan Faries helps foreign readers to see with greater clarity just how Chinese Christians view their government and themselves in relation to those ruling powers. There still exists a measure of inscrutability about China and its complex relationship with religion that must be explained to the outsider. It is this gap in understanding-between insider points of view within China and those outsiders seeking knowledge about the Christian faith in China-that Faries seeks to close.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In this important book, Nathan Faries ranges widely through history, literature and contemporary politics, and performs a really valuable service in drawing our attention to many important literary works hitherto unknown to non-Chinese speakers. I hope this excellent book finds the broad audience it deserves. -- Philip Jenkins, The Next Christendom
The "Inscrutably Chinese" Church opens a window of opportunity for us to view Protestant churches in contemporary China through a different lens....This book will help all of us see more clearly the true face of the Chinese church, close some gaps caused by cultural miscommunication, draw together the perception of those inside and those outside China, and bring the 'inscrutably Chinese' church into clearer view. * International Bulletin of Mission Research *
Nathan Faries' The "Inscrutably Chinese" Church: How Narratives and Nationalism Continue to Divide Christianity, provides a valuable guide to some of the current realities in the church life of China....His book is rich in illuminating detail, and it offers important correctives to typical characterizations by Western Christians with lesser experience and capability in spoken and written Chinese.
