The Spirit and the Flesh in Shandong tells the deeply human story of conflicting aspirations and passions in the introduction of Christianity to a provincial region in China. The story unfolds through vivid descriptions of how Chinese converts and their European priests were involved in close collaboration, an underground church, imprisonment, apostasy, martyrdom, peasant secret society affiliations, self-flagellation, and sexual seduction.
