Item description for A History of Christianity in Asia: Volume II: 1500-1900 by Samuel Hugh Moffett...

Overview
'A wonderful addition to any library of historical works . . . will expand the understanding of 'the Church' as truly universal, transhistorical and multicultural, and never again to be reduced to or confused with the Church of Christendom. This book is a gift to us all.' - Anthony J. Gittins 'With attention to detail and a passion for his subject, Moffett opens new doors of understanding to the developments, conflicts, and surprises of Christian history in Asia.'- Catholic Press Association. This second volume of Samuel Moffett's acclaimed History of Christianity in Asia illustrates the advance of the modern missionary movement in the continent of its birth. Like the first volume, it makes available immense research in a readable and engaging narrative. The four centuries treated here are years of great missionary outreach and ambiguous results. Moffett's eye brings into dramatic relief events that illustrate both the broad patterns and the vital details of the spread of Christianity on a continent with more and deeper cultural differences than any other.

Reviews - What do customers think about A History of Christianity in Asia, Vol. II: 1500-1900?

Faithful unto death  Aug 24, 2007
I was not aware of the terrible waves of persecution that decimated the early Christians in several of these Asian countries: Japan, Korea, China, Burma. Persecutions experienced by Christians in Asia today are not a new phenomenon but rather new chapters in an old book.
 
Disappointing  May 6, 2006
I ordered this book as a gift for a friend who is interested in the history of Christianity. I chose this book thinking that it would have scholarly merits. To my utmost frustration, this book is full of propoganda. There is neither the slightest respect for the non-christian cultures mentioned in it, nor any objectivity with respect to the relationships between the non-christian and christian communities. There are even strong statements towards some cultures which express much more than dislike. It is hard to beleive and sad to see that it was authored by a "scholar".
 
A seminal contribution to the study of Christian history in general, and Asian oriented missionary outreach in particular  Sep 11, 2005
The 36th title in the Orbis Books' "The American Society of Missiology Series", A History Of Christianity In Asia: Volume II, 1500-1900 focuses upon four centuries that say tremendous missionary efforts by the Catholic Church in Asia with what can only be described as ambiguous results. Informatively written by Samuel Hugh Moffett (henry Luce Professor Emeritus of Ecumenics and Mission, Princeton Theological Seminary), this 742-page masterwork is a seminal contribution to the study of Christian history in general, and Asian oriented missionary outreach in particular. Enhanced with maps, abbreviations and Acronyms of Journals, Annuals, and Organizations, a Bibliography, and an Index, this second volume is a document of impeccable and exhaustive scholarship, and a welcome contribution to Christian Studies. Also very highly recommended is the first title in this series, A History Of Christianity In Asia: Volume I, Beginnings To 1500 (1570751625, $30.00).
