5.0 von 5 Sternen Makes The Point 6. Februar 2010
Von T. Blake - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I live and work in China. I'm often approached under the assumption that so many Westerners believe in "the God" that I probably know something of the Christian religion. One of the things I've VERY often heard from mainland Chinese is that Chinese reject Christianity because "it's Western." One may argue the validity of the claims of Christianity, but there seems to be no defense of that Christianity somehow ORIGINATED in the West... unless you're talking "west of Beijing," which is NOT what the people speaking to me are meaning.

This book seems, at least to the very few who have been able to read it here, to make the deeply impacting point that perhaps that argument isn't quite so true as they've been told it is. It's an enjoyable read, in my opinion. I can say this for sure: compared to every other Chinese author I've ever read (except Jung Chung), the author did his homework. Chinese academics and society is overflowing with what those in the West call "plagiarism." This author has done his homework. Of course, people will agree or disagree with his conclusions as they will, but the quality of his work is good.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Creator of the Universe 15. September 2009
Von Jeannie Light - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Chan Kei Thong and Charlene Fu have written a very useful as well as a fascinating story of God's guiding hand on the Chinese people from very early times. The parallels with Biblical records are amazing. Among other subjects, the authors show us that:
"1. The compositon of ancient Chinese characters suggest knowledge of the earliest events of human history as described in the Bible."

"2. The Supreme Being venerated by ancient Chinese as described in historical texts corresponds to the God revealed in the Bible...."

and "7. Chinese historical records appear to confirm some key astral events spoken of in the Bible...."

I attend church in Fairfax, Virginia, and see a number of international students because of our English study programs. I've given the book as a gift to several people, and the responses have been gratefully enthusiastic. I've also found it useful in teaching Old Testament (I have two Chinese girls in my class).

However, the book is fascinating even if one has no Chinese friends or students. The parallels and historical congruencies the authors present between the Old Testament and Chinese culture and texts offer us a wonderful glimpse of an amazing Creator God.

In short, I heartily recommend the book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen the God, of ancient Chinese trusted, is the God of the Bible 20. Oktober 2012
Von An engineer from Houston - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This book demonstrates: the belief of ancient Chinese in God; and that the God, ancient Chinese trusted, is the God of the Bible.

I am convinced by the evidence presented in this book. It had an overwhelming affect on me considering: 1) I came from a background of antheislism, evolutionlism and materialism associated with a communist country; 2) Instead of the Dragon being considered as China's heritage, God, in fact, is the Chinese people's long-lost true heritage as proved in this book.

I strongly believe this book wil be of great significance for years to come due to: 1) China is a county overall without any strong belief; 2) A true faith in God with understanding is the only remedy for all suppersititions...

Thank you, Author, for such a book....

3.0 von 5 Sternen Erroneous typesets mar an otherwise fine attempt 22. April 2011
Von Laurence Lai - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This is a worthy attempt by the authors to explore the similarities or touch-points between Shang-Di worship in ancient China, and the religion of the Hebrews as recorded in the Christian Bible. Ample references are made to Chinese literature, historical writings, as well as religious practices, to illustrate that acknowledgment and reverence rendered to the Supreme Deity by the ancient Chinese, is in harmony with that required of the Hebrews and Christians to the Biblical God. The key assertion by the authors throughout, therefore, is that Shang-Di is identical to God of the Bible. The anthropological artifacts were the fingerprints and cultural signposts God had left in the history of the Chinese people - evidence that He did not leave Himself without witness, even in this ancient civilization far away from the Biblical land.

Chapter 4 is particularly captivating in that the authors describe in vivid details the great sacrifice conducted periodically by the imperial court, led by the emperor. Other parts of the book are less relevant to the main thesis, however, such as that of the Magi from the West. It can be told from the "Reflect and Respond" section at the end of each chapter that the authors have proselytizing in mind. As such, it may not be fair to hold this work with the same level of rigor as that for the academia. Even so, a mistake as careless as to suggest a solar eclipse (p.317) would coincide with Christ's death during the Jewish Passover (full moon) simply diminishes the persuasive power of the authors' other arguments, especially to an inquiring mind.

While not denying God has been working His providential grace in all cultures, peoples, tribes, and languages throughout human history and beyond, what Shang-Di worship in ancient China could probably find its best parallel is with the "unknown god" at the Athenian Mars Hill (Acts 18). Pushing any further will tilt the arguments towards the danger of syncretism against which the authors themselves have warned (P. 326).

This English edition of the book is bound and printed fabulously with thick, high-quality paper. The designs, graphics, and pictures are of the utmost qualities that add great joy to the reading. Alas, for a reader who read both English and Chinese, the numerous incorrect Chinese typesets throughout such a handsome product make it all the more regrettable.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great resource for anyone interested in ancient Chinese history and Christianity. 8. Januar 2011
Von Abraham Ho - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The contents of "Finding God in Ancient China" are great, but not only that, the design, layout and the many attractive painting, drawings and illustrations add so much to a reader's understanding and enjoyment of the book. One of the great surprises to me about the book were the two poems by Emperor Kangxi: "The Treasure of Life" and "The Cross." Even though I am Chinese and have been a dedicated Christian for many years, I had never read these two poems. I believe one of the reasons that Kangxi was able to rule China so successfully for 61 years is that he was enjoying the blessing of God. Even though he never got baptized, it is clear he received God to be his Savior.

After reading this book, I have bought many copies to give to friends who are interested in China but know little about it. This is an eye-opening book that will surprise many Western readers about China's ancient past and God's role even in China's earliest days.
