Banner-carrying Salvation Army marchers, stone-silent Quakers, jumpy Midwestern revivalists, and Prayer-book Anglicans all made up the mixed multitude sent to the Middle Kingdom by the China Inland Mission (CIM) in the nineteenth century. In China's Millions veteran historian Alvyn Austin crafts a compelling narrative of the sprawling history of the China Inland Mission.This book introduces readers to a remarkable array of sights, from the visionary, charismatic sect-leader Pastor Hsi, to the "wordless book," a missionary teaching device that fit perfectly with Chinese color cosmology, to the opium-soaked aftermath of the North China Famine of 1877-79. Clear, readable, and well researched, China's Millions digs deeply into the Chinese and Western past to tell a story of the strange yet hopeful result of two cultures colliding.CONTENTSFOREWORDLIST OF ILLUSTRATIONSACKNOWLEDGMENTSPREFACEABBREVIATIONSIntroductionPutting on Chinese DressThe Wordless BookSectarian ConversionJesus OpiumThe Conspiracy of SilenceThen and NowOne Pilgrim's ProgressPART I: THE FIRST GENERATION, 1832-18801.
