There are only a handful of Tibetan Christians, but the history of the Christian faith within this province is long and remarkable. In Tibet, the fourth volume in The China Chronicles, Paul Hattaway recounts the stories of the many courageous, tenacious men and women who have attempted to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Roof of the World, revealing the continued growth of Christianity against overwhelming odds.

Full of rare photographs and vivid biographies of the dedicated missionaries that enabled God's astonishing work in the face of relentless persecution, Tibet offers a window into a little-known area of Chinese history and the history of the Christian church. From Marco Polo's travels in the thirteenth century to what the future may hold for the growth of the church in both Tibet and the rest of China, this book provides insight into how the Holy Spirit is at work in one of the world's remotest regions.

Perfect for anyone looking to gain more knowledge of Christianity in China, this book will give you an informed understanding of the history of the Christian faith in Tibet. As well as learning how the people of Tibet have been affected by the revival of Christianity throughout China, you will find encouragement and inspiration in the stories of Christians both past and present who remained steadfast in their faith even in the most difficult of circumstances.
