Wielander’s book argues that Christian values play an important and interesting part as new political and social values are formed in post-socialist China.

Adopting a variety of different angles, the book investigates the role Christian thought plays in the official discourse on morality and love, and what contribution Chinese Christians make to charitable projects. It analyses key Christian publications and dedicates two chapters to Christian intellectuals and their impact on political liberal thinking in China. The concluding chapter highlights gender roles, the role of the Chinese diaspora, and the overlap of the government and Christian agenda in China today. The book challenges commonly held views on contemporary Chinese Christianity as a movement in opposition to the state by showing the diversity and complexity of Christian thinking and the many factors influencing it.
