📙 Baptized in the fire of revolution: the American social gospel and the YMCA in China, 1919-1937 by Chün Hsing, Jun Xing — free epub


This study examines how the social gospel, an indigenous American reform ideology, was exported to the turbulent Chinese situation in the early twentieth century by the Young MenOs Christian Association. Beginning with an overview of the YMCA and its role in American Christianity around the turn of the century, this book relates how the institution evolved and developed its own form of Social Gospel Protestantism.
