"With the publication of 'Love Never Ends', readers have in one volume, most of Bishop K.H. Ting's important articles since the resurgence of Christianity in China in the early 1980s. .... 'Love Never Ends' is an English version of the original Chinese volume. This gives readers access to a book on Christianity primarily intended for a Chinese, and overwhelmingly non-Christian, audience. Ten thousand copies of the book in hard cover were printed in September 1998; by June 1999, these had nearly sold out and a second printing was undertaken. There is now a paperback edition as well. A Korean version, also titled 'Love Never Ends', was published in Seoul in October 1999. .... Under its Chinese title, 'Selected Writings of K.H. Ting', the book has introduced a new audience to Christian and theological concerns. .... A number of the sermons, talks, and essays in this book were originally written in English by Bishop Ting. Most of the translations are my own ..". -- Editor's Note for the English Version.
