"Liao's coverage of Christians allows truth to shine in the darkness. That's the beauty of his writings." --Liu Xiaobo, winner of the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize
Chinese dissident author Liao Yiwu--the once lauded, later imprisoned, and now celebrated author of "The Corpse Walker"--profiles the extraordinary lives of dozens of Chinese Christians, providing a rare glimpse into the burgeoning underground world of belief that is taking hold within the officially atheistic state of Communist China. A luminous writer, and not a Christian himself, Yiwu offers a uniquely objective and insightful perspective on the position Christians occupy in mainland China, in a book that readers of Philip Jenkins' "The" "Lost History of Christianity "as well as Peter Hessler's "Country Driving "will not want to miss.
