'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
'With attention to detail and a passion for his subject, Moffett opens new doors of understanding to the developments, conflicts, and surprises of Christian history in Asia.' - Catholic Press Association
This second volume of Samuel Moffett's acclaimed History of Christianity in Asia illustrates the advance of the modern missionary movement in the continent of its birth. Like the first volume, it makes available immense research in a readable and engaging narrative. The four centuries treated here are years of great missionary outreach and ambiguous results. Moffett's 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.
Samuel Hugh Moffett is Henry Luce Professor Emeritus of Ecumenics and Mission at Princeton Theological Seminary. He is the author of A History of Christianity in Asia Volume I: Beginnings to 1500.
