In spite of religious suppression, Christianity has been growing rapidly in China, so much so that China may become the country with the largest Christian population by the year 2030. How is this possible? America's foremost expert on Christianity in China, Fenggang Yang, professor of sociology and director of the Center on Religion and Chinese Society at Purdue University, talks about the social and cultural factors for the Christian growth, why Protestantism grows faster than Catholicism, and the changing church-state relationship. He is author of “Atlas of Religion in China” (Brill, 2018).
