Let us learn from those being revived

In Faith in the Wilderness, editors Hannah Nation and Simon Liu collect insights of the Chinese church for the West. These sermonic letters from Chinese Christians pull back the curtain on the pastoral heart and the hope behind the house churches’ remarkable faithfulness, awakening readers to the reality of the gospel—the ground of our hope—in the midst of darkness. Readers will be convicted, encouraged, and edified by the testimony of these Chinese Christians.

The Center for House Church Theology (CHCT) desires to foster and further the international publishing of pastors, church leaders, and teachers committed to the historic gospel of grace in China’s urban house churches.

In promoting the theological leadership of China’s urban house churches, we believe dialogue between Christians in China and those from other cultural contexts will lead to mutual edification and sanctification.
