Description
Western evangelists have long been fascinated by China, a vast mission field with a unique language and culture. One of the most intrigued was himself one of the most intriguing, Karl F.A. Gützlaff. "How could one be so arrogant, insecure, linguistically talented, pious, and yet willing to assist the opium trade?" wondered historian Jessie Lutz. Lutz follows Gützlaff from his youth in Germany to his conversion and subsequent turn to missions to his turbulent time in Asia. Lutz also includes a substantial bibliography of archival sources, writings and translations by Gützlaff, and other publications on the history of China and its missions.

"Lutz weaves the remarkable personal story of Gützlaff together with very astute discussion and analysis of many aspects of early Sino-Western relations between 1830 and 1860: trade and opium, China and the West's limited knowledge of each other, early Bible translations and the importance of language skills, foreign links with Chinese society, and dynamics of the foreign community itself. Opening China contains the accumulated wisdom of one of our very best and most respected Chinese scholars."—Daniel Bays
