    By Dani AddanteFor those who love learning about religion and history this book is for you It’s about the history of Christianity in China It begins with missionaries traveling to China in the 1800s and continues to present day Christianity This scholarly work explores the Christian movements that spread throughout China and the key people involvedI didn’t know much about Chinese history so many of the things I read in this book were new to me One thing I found especially interesting because it’s similar to Joseph Smith’s first vision was that there were others who had visions of God and Jesus One was a king named Hong Xiuuan who had a vision in 1837 “In this vision he had been given a sword and was told to destroy devils” 18 Not only did he see God and Jesus but Heavenly Mother appeared in his vision as well Page 22 has a description of the vision and reminds me a lot of the War in Heaven In the next century in 1917 Wei Enbo had a similar experience and started the True Jesus Church 19 I liked this because it reminds us that God speaks to people of all cultures and religionsTo continue reading
