Reprint; originally pub. as Abingdon Dictionary of Living Religions, 1981; pg. 180. "CHRISTIANITY IN ASIA. At the beginning of the 1980s Christianity outside the Indian subcontinent was flourishing, languishing, insignificant, or suppressed, usually in consequence to two unrelated factors: 1) the method followed by those who laid the foundations for Christianity in the given area or country, and 2) the policy of the government presently controlling that area or country... Generally speaking, the strongest Christian churches and movements were flourishing where their founders had required self-government, self-propagation, and self-support as a matter of course from the beginning. As a result, the Methodist tribal churches of the remote Yunnanese highlands in mainland China and their counterpart Presbyterian churches of Korea, and the great Dutch Reformed tribal churches in the Batak fastness of Indonesia were overwhelmingly the strongest religious communities and influences of their respective areas.
