A History of Christianity in Asia II

In stock

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.

Samuel Hugh Moffett (1916-2015) was Henry Luce Professor Emeritus of Ecumenics and Mission at Princeton Theological Seminary. Born in Korea, Professor Moffett worked in China from 1947 to 1951 and in Korea from 1951 to 1981. He is the author of A History of Christianity in Asia Volume I: Beginnings to 1500.

Samuel Hugh Moffett
These books [Vol. 1 and 2] not only enlighten the West about their lost Eastern Christian history, and restore that history, they also recount the loss of much of the Christian faith from the Eastern world. That history has great significance today as the persecution of remaining Christians especially in the Middle East and Asia is coming close to eliminating Christianity from many of its historic lands.
