Between 1927 and 1951 millions of Christian posters in Chinese styles entered the Chinese market to share Jesus and the Christian message. The Center for Global Christianity & Mission of Boston University, funded by the Henry Luce Foundation, has made those hundreds of rare images digitally accessible and searchable. You can have a glimpse of the complex political, social, economic, and religious landscape of China in the second quarter of the twentieth century through these fascinating posters.
