    One thought on “The Church of the East (An Edited and Condensed Version of Nestorian Missionary Enterprise)

    1. Mel

      Each chapter covers the Catholic church missionary work and persecution in different areas of the east. The version I have was edited by John Holzmann and the entire book, read as a whole, doesn't flow well. Each chapter starts from the beginning of time for that area and so you may read about 655 AD in numerous chapters. I see why he did it this way, but a timeline would have been helpful, even beneficial.Some chapters were far more interesting to me than others, such as chapters 9 and 10 regar [...]

      I read this book for school since I was studying the history of the Christian church. Nonfiction books aren't my thing, so I wasn't thrilled by it, but it was relatively interesting. It described the massive influence of the Christian church on Asia. There were actually thousands of Christians throughout central Asia for centuries, until the Muslims and the Mongols came along. This was a very informational book, but the writing style wasn't very interesting.

      When I think religion in the East, I've always thought of Hinduism and Buddhism. This book awakened me to the fact that before Krishna and before Buddha, Christianity made it's way eastward. It was the later attacks by Mongols and Muslims that apparently crushed the Eastern Church. However, there are remnants of Christ's church remaining in the East today and it was interesting to learn about their traditions. I did, however, find this book to be a bit disjointed in its delivery.

      I have always loved history. That’s probably, in large part, why I was attracted to Sonlight Curriculum. Not only do I have the chance and the excuse to read all sorts of great books to my children, but I get to read things I’d never have the chance to, myself! The Church of the East is one of those books.Read my full review here.

      This book was too detailed for me, e.g a large part of the book is devoted to detailing the martyrdoms of individuals in the early eastern church. I would rather focus on the larger trends of how the Nestorian Church impacted the East.
