Synopsis: Paperback now in stock for $40.00. Light Through an Eastern Window was written by The Right Reverend Bishop Karnam C. Pillai, D.D. (1901-1970). Bishop Pillai was Bishop of the Indian Orthodox Church, Antiochean Succession, Chennai (Madras) India, and then was sent on Special Mission to America to acquaint Christians about Orientalisms in the Bible. His work was interdenominational, and he was widely acclaimed as America's foremost authority on the Eastern Culture of the Bible. Church Management reviewed the book: "...of great interest to the Bible scholar as well as to the layman. Bishop Pillai, with loving patience, interprets for us of the West. His examples are crystal clear. I recommend it to you." The Baptist Sunday School Board, Southern Baptist Convention well described this classic book: "Very interesting and helpful information, which the Ordinary American would never discover. This book acquaints the reader with Eastern customs, prevalent in Scriptures. The customs often are shown to have automatic, hidden-to-the-westerner, meanings which the author utilizes to point out Scriptural meanings which would otherwise escape us. Customs which are discussed, together with appropriate Scriptures, are: Marriage, the Salt Covenant, Childbirth, the Rearing of Children, Death and Burials, Laws and Justice, The Woman at the Well, Plants and Trees, Agriculture and Herding, Idioms, Sacrifices, and the Canopy. Ministers will find this overflowing with illustration material. Any layman interested in Bible study will profit from this study, and find it not only illuminating but very interesting. Teachers will love this! Every preacher can benefit from it. Recommended." Together published: "I have found an unusual Bible study help in this book, in which Indian Orthodox Bishop K. C. Pillai explains Bible passages in the light of Oriental customs." Rev. Norman Vincent Peale commented about the book: "I have now read your wonderful little book; I find it packed full of insights which will be very helpful to me. I shall commend it wherever I can." Every divinity school teacher and student must have this Homiletic book as well as every Pastor seeking new ideas for his sermons, as well as all laymen interested in Biblical traditions and people who examine the spiritual dimension within secular societies in Cross-Cultural Studies.
