about

In God is Red, Chinese dissident journalist and poet Liao Yiwu—once lauded, later imprisoned, and now celebrated author of For a Song and a Hundred Songs and The Corpse Walker—profiles the extraordinary lives of dozens of Chinese Christians, providing a rare glimpse into the underground world of belief that is taking hold within the officially atheistic state of Communist China. Liao felt a kinship with Chinese Christians in their unwavering commitment to the freedom of expression and to finding meaning in a tumultuous society, even though he is not a Christian himself. This is a fascinating tale of otherwise unknown personalities thriving against all odds. God is Red will resonate with readers of Phillip Jenkins' The Lost History of Christianity and Peter Hessler's Country Driving.

Liao Yiwu is a critic of the Chinese regime, for which he has been imprisoned and his works have been banned. He is the author ofThe Corpse Walker: Real Life Stories, China from the Bottom Upand a forthcoming memoir. In 2011, Liao dramatically escaped from China and now splits his time between the United States and Germany.Wenguang Hua...
