"An important volume for both church circles and academic scholars, After Imperialism touches off the issue of evangelicalism that connects the world, yet also creates conflicts between peoples in the history of Christianity. It represents the valuable fruits of a unique meeting of historians, theologians, and Bible scholars on the two sides of the Pacific Ocean. Their dialogue contains reflections, challenges, and deliberation of the Protestant missions in China in the past and also in the future. It makes a major contribution to the new horizon of study in this field while examining old ones in scholarly light."
Peter Chen-Main Wang, National Central University, Taiwan
"This book initiates a new, fertile conversation between biblical reading and understandings of modern Chinese history, informed by social science and post-colonial theory."
Richard Madsen, Distinguished Professor and Chair, Department of Sociology, University of California, San Diego
"This volume helpfully outlines some ways in which imperial readings of the Bible and Christian history have led to the inexcusable importation of Western divisions into Chinese church life."
Lawrence Braschi, in Church Times, 30 November 2012
"... opens a way to overcome missionary paralysis for fear of propagating or capitulating to neo-colonialism."
Beau Pihlaja, in Theological Book Review, Vol 24, No 2
"[After Imperialism] is good in pointing out the pietistic and dispensational views of many of the unregistered churches and the false Western expectation that the growing church in China has political democracy as part of its vision."
Ray Porter, in Evangelicals Now, August 2013
"After Imperialism is thus best appreciated for what it represents: an early attempt to bring together two different conversations. Hopefully the participants behind After Imperialism will reconvene again soon, providing readers with an opportunity to appreciate more recent Chinese appropriations of global evangelicalism as well as the ways in which Chinese Christian identity can and will shape the nature of global evangelicalism on into the future."
Andrew Kaiser, in The Expository Times, Vol 125, No 5
