"It is still generally taken for granted.that the history of Christianity is essentially European history, and that beyond Europe's immediate eastern borders lies a homogeneous Muslim world..Here.in comprehensive and accessible form, is a unique survey of this [Christian Middle Eastern] heritage, written by first-class scholars and by those who best know the Eastern Mediterranean world from within..This is a very significant book indeed for all, Christians or non-Christians, who want a better understanding not only of the Middle East but of the whole of our contemporary cultural and religious scene." - Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury / "Missionary engagement and theological creativity; interaction with other religions, cultures and civilizations and promotion of justice, peace and freedom; diaconal action and martyria in life and in death have marked the long, complex and rich history of Eastern Christendom..This book is a serious and bold attempt to provide a unique perspective on various dimensions and spheres of the churches' life in the Middle East." - Aram I, Catholicos of Cilicia and Moderator of the World Council of Churches / "Authors belonging to various ecclesial traditions trace together the history of Christianity in the Middle East. Their common approach reveals to what extent 'unity in diversity' has been a meaningful gift, as much as it remains a demanding challenge to the historic lands where Christianity first spread." - Walter Cardinal Kasper, President, Pontifical Council for the Promotion of Christian Unity
