4:30 PM - 6:00 PMBilly Graham in the People's Republic of China

Location: 451 Riddick

Billy Graham, the most influential American evangelical leader of the 20thcentury, played a unique role in the resurgence of Christianity in China and Sino-American relations during the second half of that century. Although an outspoken critic of communism in the 1950s, two decades later Graham was promoting the opening of Sino-American relations and paving the way for renewed missionary work in China. His evolving attitude toward China and its impact on Sino-American relations provide a significant commentary on the changing perceptions and interactions between two world powers. This lecture explores the role American evangelicals have played in the recent history of Sino-American relations using Billy Graham as a case study.
