Description

The late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries saw the publication of many books promoting evangelical Christian missionary work in Muslim countries, particularly in African, Asia and the Far East. Islam in China, first published in 1910 was promulgated by the World Missionary Conference in order to help establish Christian missionary policy in China.Though the nature of missionary work has changed and though world events have overtaken religious practices in China, the value of the present work now lies in its study of Chinese Muslims, their culture and modes of worship and their part in the complex fabric of Chinese society. Illustrated with many photographs showing traditional Islamic architecture and design, curiously influenced by Chinese styles, the book presents a comprehensive portrait of life among the many millions of Muslims in China at the turn of the century.show more
