The Robert Morrison Project
Please consider how you can support the Robert Morrison Project:
The Robert Morrison Project [www.robertmorrisonproject.org] is a non-profit, non-denominational organization dedicated to legally translating and publishing reformed literature in China and other South East Asian countries. Starting about ten years ago it became possible to legally publish some forms of Christian literature in China. Slowly, over the past few years, more and more titles entered legal circulation. The door is not completely open but it is cracked open and some good quality Reformed titles are being published and distributed in China. Most amazing of all, the genres of literature that the government has been allowing to be published are the very genres that Reformed publishers have been focusing on for the past 50+ years.
In recent years the government has been allowing biographies, old books with historical value (e.g. Pilgrim's Progress), and marriage and family books to be published.
Soli Deo Gloria, Evangelical Press, and especially the Banner of Truth, are all extremely strong in these areas and have a large number of titles that have a good chance of passing government censorship. With the church in China approaching 100 million members and growing at 9% a year and with a very small number of Christian titles in legal circulation, this is an opportunity that we can not ignore.
Currently, neither the local church nor the Chinese Christian publishing companies are able to self finance high quality translations in large numbers. In most cases, foreign funding is required.
The purpose of the Robert Morrison Project is to raise funds to help lay the foundation for the long term, legal presence of Reformed literature in China.
