A Christian's Pocket Guide to the Chinese Summary

A Christian's Pocket Guide to the Chinese by OMF International

From Mao to McDonalds: a nation transformed.


If you go to the Wangfujing shopping centre in Beijing then you will find it bustling with shoppers and lines with expensive stores. Taking a break from the throng you can stop for a coffee at Starbucks or have a snack at McDonalds. These are all signs of an increasing 'westernisation' in China but behind the scenes there is also a spiritual transformation taking place.


This book is designed to help you if you have regular interaction with people from China. Firstly, it gives you a brief outline of the major changes that have taken place in recent history so that you can understand their cultural background.


Secondly, it looks at Chinese students in more detail. Why are they in your schools and universities? Where in China do they come from and what difference does that make? What has changed in their attitude to study? What is their lifestyle likely to be like? What will they think of you?


Thirdly, it looks at how best to befriend Chinese people and make them welcome in your country and Fourthly, how best to engage them in discussion (including a valuable FAQ section with answers and further resources to go to) and Fifthly, how to speak on spiritual topics.


There is also an appendix with suggested further reading.


If you meet Chinese people at work, socially or in education you will find this an invaluable tool. It is also useful for those travelling to China for work or leisure.


A Christian's Pocket Guide to the Chinese Reviews

After a brief historical and cultural background, the guides launch into the practical of what not to say, and how to make genuine friendships that will bring gospel opportunities with them. Clear and encouraging. Even if you don't know any Chinese or Japanese, just reading these short guides will encourage you to take opportunities as they arise. Highly recommended.
