5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing piece of literature., 18 April 2003
As an ethnic Assyrian, and an adherent of the Church of the East, I have long been waiting for a piece of literature that provides a full and concise history of the Church of the East, and it is finally here.
The depth and breadth of this book is truly awe-inspiring, and the accuracy of its facts, dates, names and figures is amazing. The book is presented and laid out in such a way, that with its chronological order, it is very hard for a reader to become confused along the way. The book's illustrations are superb and include monuments of the Church of the East, together with pictures of ancient monasteries and churches, and even provides a map of the size of the Church of the East in the Middle Ages. The book touches upon all aspects of the Church of the East from theology and schisms, to literature, language, patriarchs and schools.
One factor that also makes this book stand out is the fact that it provides approximate figures of contemporary adherents of the Assyrian Church of the East and the Ancient Church of the East, together with their sister church the Chaldean Catholic Church, and their dioceses worldwide.
The book traces the steps of the Church of the East to the present day, making it a very up-to date book, which is accurate, and extremely well co-ordinated. I would recommend it to anyone.
Very well done to its authors.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Church of the East : A Concise History, 5 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Church of the East: A Concise History (Paperback)
The book is excellent, but marred in parts by the translation from the German, which at times gives the impression of having been done by a non-native speaker of English.
