Editorial Reviews

Review

"Christoph Baumer's fine book should take its place at once as much the best available general history of the Church of the East, from its beginnings to the present day. It is especially strong on the expansion of the Church in Central and East Asia, making excellent use of recent finds. Throughout it is splendidly illustrated by photographs, many of which were taken during the author's own extensive travels."--Sebastian Brock, University of Oxford
 
"This is a stupendous work. Its range – historical, geographical, intellectual – is breathtaking, and it combines presentation of the highest quality via scholarship of the highest order…Dr. Baumer’s text is dense and formidably well-researched…Dr. Baumer’s book sets a new standard for studies of this kind. It looks likely to establish itself as a key work of reference, and should hold the field in the area of oriental Christianity for some time to come." – Christopher Segar, Asian Affairs
 

'’…Baumer has written a comprehensive and well-researched account…[He] has visited many of the places where the Church of the East exists or has existed, and has an extensive knowledge of the surviving written and archaeological evidence for its history.  [The Church of the East] is splendidly illustrated and attractively presented…’’--Logos: A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies

"The historian, Christopher Baumer, has produced a beautiful picture book…The book is a pleasure to just flick through – but it’s also a very able history of this virtually lost Christianity" -- Diarmaid MacCulloch, thebrowser.com
