Special attention will be given to the beginning, the growth, the persecution and some characteristic facts of Protestantism. The materials are almost all mined out of the Chinese records but they have been carefully compared with English writings. It is written without the idea of criticism or the feeling of prejudice. Some critical facts in it are taken from English books.
