ICC Note:
According to new studies, China will be home to the majority of the world’s Christians within twenty years. This report is somewhat staggering considering China’s policy of restricting the freedom of religion within their borders. How can Christians around the world help this rapidly growing and persecuted Christians population?   
12/6/2012 China (CatholicNews) – China will be home to the majority of the world’s Christians within the next two decades, a prominent theologian said at a recent book launch in Rome, reports the Catholic News Agency.
“Interfaith dialogue is something that China, which will have the world’s largest Christian population in 20 years, lives with every day,” said Harvey Cox during the presentation at the city’s Jesuit Gregorian University.
Cox presented the book Catholic Engagement with World Religions: A Comprehensive Study, in dialogue with its two editors on Friday with Cardinal Karl Josef Becker, a German theologian of the Vatican’s the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
The editors include Ilaria Morali of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, who also presented the book, and Cardinal Becker.
Cox, who teaches at the Harvard Divinity School in Massachusetts, said the new book “will play an invaluable role”  in determining “where we’ve been in the past, where we are now, and where we’re headed.”
