Xinhua Bookstore

Xinhua BookstoreXinhua Bookstore was created by the Propaganda Directorate of the Chinese Communist Party, which endeavors to control what people read about China.

Still owned by the Chinese Communist Party, Xinhua Bookstore occupies over 15,000 prime retail locations across China and remains its dominant bookstore chain.

The one book that cannot be found at any Xinhua Bookstore in China is the Bible. China now has more Christians than any other country in the world (see Christianity in China) and also prints more Bibles than any other country in the world (see Amity Printing). Yet, the Chinese Communist Party continues to forbid the Bible from being sold to its citizens at the Xinhua Bookstores in China.

Why? 

The Chinese Communist Party wants to suppress Christianity and its growth in China (see Christian persecution in China), but this ploy is backfiring; instead of suppressing Christianity, it is giving rise to pseudo-Christian cults and sects (e.g., Eastern Lightning and Shouters) that threaten the Chinese society (see China Threat).

The antidote to the false and dangerous teachings of such pseudo-Christian cults and sects is the True Gospel of the Bible, which should be made as easy to buy as the books on Taoism and Buddhism that line Xinhua Bookstore shelves across China.

What can the Christians in the West do to help?

Those near the Xinhua Bookstores in the West can picket them to bring attention to the Chinese Communist Party's hypocrisy of allowing Chinese Bibles to be sold in its stores in the West, albeit at exorbitant prices, but not to its own citizens at its stores in China.
