Xinhua Bookstore

Xinhua BookstoreXinhua Bookstore is the only bookstore chain in China. Owned by the Chinese Communist Party, which wants to 'manage' what the Chinese people read, Xinhua Bookstores occupy over 15,000 large, prime retail locations across China.

In recent years, Xinhua Bookstore has begun to expand overseas. As of 2012, there are three Xinhua Bookstores in America: two in New York City and one in San Diego, California.

The one book that cannot be found among Xinhua Bookstore's exhaustive list of titles in China is the Bible. The Chinese Communist Party officially recognizes Christianity and China now has more Christians - 150 million - than any other country in the world. China now also prints more Bibles than any other country in the world. Yet, while it allows Chinese Bibles to be sold in its three Xinhua Bookstores in America, the Chinese Communist Party forbids them from being sold to its citizens at the Xinhua Bookstores in China.

The prohibition against selling Bibles at Xinhua Bookstores is another ploy used by the Chinese Communist Party to try to suppress Christianity. But the ploy is backfiring; instead of suppressing Christianity, it is giving rise to pseudo-Christian cults and sects that harm the Chinese society.

The antidote to the false teachings of such pseudo-Christian cults and sects is the true Word of God, which should be made as accessible as the books of Taoism and Buddhism, which like Christianity are officially recognized by the Chinese Communist Party but have their books line Xinhua Bookstore shelves across China.

What can the Christians in America do to help?

Those living near the three Xinhua Bookstores in New York City and San Diego can picket them to bring attention to the Chinese Communist Party's hypocrisy of allowing Chinese Bibles to be sold in America, albeit at exorbitant prices that start at $11, but not to its own citizens in China.
