A History of Christianity in Asia II
By: Samuel Hugh Moffett
A wonderful addition to any library of historical works...will expand the understanding of 'the Church' as truly universal, transhistorical and multi-cultural, and never again to be reduced to or confused with the Church of Christendom. This book is a gift to us all. --Anthony J. Gittins
Like the first volume, this edition makes available immense research in a readable and engaging narrative. The four centuries treated here are years of great missionary outreach and ambiguous results. Moffetts eye brings into dramatic relief events that illustrate both the broad patterns and the vital details of the spread of Christianity on a continent with more and deeper cultural differences than any other.
