Series number: Globethics.net China Christian No. 1

Faith is the mainsail for the ship called "China Dream". A key to the fulfilment of the "China Dream" is the revival of Chinese Civilization. The core of civilization is culture, and the core of culture is faith.

And the emerging group of Chinese Christian entrepreneurs are an essential part of this class for China. The book provides an orientation and basics on Christian faith for Chinese Christian Entrepreneurs: on Jesus Christ, the Bible, basic doctrines, the Church, spirituality, Church history, denominations and twelve criteria for Christian business.
