Norman Howard Cliff

Norman Howard Cliff (1925–2007) was a British Protestant Christian author who wrote about Christianity and the history of missionary work in China.


Cliff was born in Yantai (Chefoo) to a missionary family serving with the China Inland Mission.

Cliff was interned by the Japanese at the Weihsien or Weifang concentration camp in 1941. The prisoners at Weifang were liberated in 1945 by American paratroopers.

He wrote seven books, and a thesis ‘’A History of the Protestant Movement in Shandong Province, China, 1859 to 1951’’. Cliff earned an M.Phil degree at the Open University, and then a Ph. D. at Buckingham University, where he was capped by Lady Margaret Thatcher.
