Remembering K.H. Ting, Key Protestant Leader Goes Home
My guess is that a relatively small number of Christians in America have ever heard of K.H. Ting, who died on November 22, 2012 at age 97. In this article, Fuller Seminary President Richard Mouw is quoted as saying, "Christianity is flourishing in China, and much of the vitality is due to the labors . . . of Bishop K.H. Ting." A courageous, controversial figure, Ting was influential in shaping the Chinese Protestant Church in both its institutional and underground expressions, even as he maintained close ties with the Communist government. Reconstructing Christianity in China: K.H. Ting and the Chinese Church, by Philip L. Wickeri, is the definitive work on this saint's fascinating life and courageous faith.
