David Aikman talks about Liu Xiaobo and Operation Deterrence



Thursday, December 16, 2010

China Aid Association (Midland, TX—Dec. 16, 2010) David Aikman, former Time Magazine Beijing bureau chief and author of "Jesus in Beijing: How Christianity is Transforming China and Changing the Global Balance of Power" talks about Nobel Peace Prize laureate Liu Xiaobo and Operation Deterrence in this interview with Bob Crittenden, host of "The Meeting House" on Faith Broadcasting (WLBF/WSTF/WDYF in Montgomery, Alabama) that aired on Friday Dec. 10, the day of the Nobel Peace Prize award ceremony. Operation Deterrence is the Chinese government crackdown on house churches that was launched on Dec. 1. As part of the crackdown, the Communist Party labeled house churches a "cult," citing as a reason the fact that house church Christians want China to be Christianized. Aikman's book was probably the first to raise the possibility of a Christianized China, an idea that was scoffed at when the book was first released in 2003.http://www.meetinghouseonline.info/download/AikmanDecember1010.mp3
