(p.25) Chapter 1 The Protestant Episcopal China Mission and Chinese Society
Christian Encounters with Chinese Culture

Edward Yihua XU

Hong Kong University Press

Chapter 1 offers a broad overview of the work of the Protestant Episcopal Church Mission and its impact on Chinese society. Yihua Xu contends that the PECM had a mission strategy aimed at the elite, and that the work of the mission was somewhat successful in meeting its goals. Thus, the work of the CHSKH in education and building up the church, as well as in influencing Chinese politics, became embedded in Chinese social and cultural life.
