I have a good friend who
-Was born and raised in China
-Came to the USA ~16 years ago
-A decent speaker and reader of English, but her native language is most definitely Chinese (Mandarin? )
-She became a Christian soon after coming to the USA
-Has expressed an interest in the Catholic Faith ( via relationship with me )

I want to get her a book like "Catholic and Christian" by Alan Schreck, but in Mandarin.

Might anyone have a recommendation, and where I could get such a book in time for Christmas?

Thank you in advance.

Thank all of you for looking at my post.
I of course was hoping that someone would have an answer, but sometimes there is not one.
Blessings to you all.

This forum tends to be pretty quiet. Why don't we try moving your question to Cath 101 where it has a better chance of being seen?

Note that this church is Cantonese, not Mandarin. Mandarin speakers tend to be prejudiced against Cantonese speakers.

Let me suggest she read in English -- this is her country now, and the better her English the better her chances of success.

I'm willing to bet a hot dog that the Cantonese people will be aware of Catholic books in Mandarin - at least more aware than I am. I'd also wager that googling "Catholic parish in United States with Mass in Mandarin" will bring up results as well:
