Reviews - What do customers think about The Syriac Church and Fathers (Gorgias Reprint Series, Volume 23)?
A refreshing overview Aug 20, 2003
Almost a hundred years old, this is still one of the best introductions to the Syriac Church, literature and history. Starting with Alexander the Great and ending at the arrival of Islam, the focus lies on the early Christian centuries. On 150 pages the author weaves the important persons and events into a refreshing narrative. He describes all the cultural streams, political interests and theological developments of the time without loosing himself to judgment or speculation. A true example of scientific literature!
