Jennifer Lin - Book Signing

  • 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
  • Lecture Hall 3, Rockwell Hall

Journalist Jennifer Lin weaves oral history and archival resources to dramatize 150 years of her family history. Shanghai Faithful is a multi-generational saga of the Lin family, serving as a brisk history of Christianity in China. From 19th century missions to the churches of war-torn Shanghai and today's thriving house churches, the book vividly brings to life a country's turbulent history and a family's poignant struggles. When the Cultural Revolution appears to tear the family apart, forgiveness and understanding prevail, setting the stage for a new beginning.
