Synopsis

Journalist Jennifer Lin will discuss Shanghai Faithful: Betrayal and Forgiveness in a Chinese Christian Family, a heartrending family memoir that follows the course of five generations of the Lin family. From the first convert in a fishing village in coastal Fujian to an Ivy League-educated Anglican priest and the independent religious leader Watchman Nee, the trajectory of the Lin family over the past 150 years serves as a window into the early days and evolution of Christianity in modern China.
