We are pleased to announce that Xi Lian, Professor of History at Duke Divinity School, will be the new series editor for our recently renamed series, "Studies of Christianity in China." A specialist in religious and intellectual encounters between China and the West, Professor Lian is the author of The Conversion of Missionaries: Liberalism in American Protestant Missions in China, 1907-1932 (Pennsylvania State University Press, 1997) and Redeemed by Fire: The Rise of Popular Christianity in Modern China (Yale University Press, 2010). He takes over from series-founder Kathleen L. Lodwick, who recently retired, but continues her busy research agenda.
