 An in-depth examination of Christians in conflict with the Communist government in China, and discussion of appropriate responses.

"There is of course a point at which a Christian may decide that to obey God he must take sides against his government: become an active revolutionary in an underground resistance, or a martyr through public prophetic denunciation. But few westerners, especially Americans, realize the extreme nature of this decision, or the possibilities of Christian action short of it." - p. 78.
