of Christianity: The Thousand-Year Golden Age of the Church in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia--and How It Died to read ⁚ Author John Philip Jenkins ⁼ Starred Review Revisionist history is always great fun, and never so than when it is persuasively and cogently argued Jenkins, the Penn State history professor whose book The Next Christendom made waves several years ago, argues that it s not exactly a new thing that Christianity is making terrific inroads in Asia and Africa A thousand years ago, those continents were Christian than Europe, and Asian Christianity in particular was the locus of tremendous innovations in mysticism, monasticism, theology and secular knowledge The little told story of Christianity s decline in those two continentshastened by Mongol invasions, the rise of Islam and Buddhism, and internecine quarrelsis sensitively and imaginatively rendered Jenkins sometimes challenges the assertions of other scholars, including Karen Armstrong and Elaine Pagels, but provides compelling evidence for his views The book is marvelously accessible for the lay reader and replete with fascinating details to help personalize the ambitious sweep of global history Jenkins undertakes This is an important counterweight to previous histories that have focused almost exclusively on Christianity in the West Nov Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.In leaner, clearer prose than ever before, Jenkins outlines and analyzes this history, which few present day Christians have even heard of This may be the most eye opening history book of the year Booklist Jenkins depiction of the long Christian history of Asia, Mesopotamia, and the greater Middle East is both a much needed education and a spiritually fruitful provocation Books CultureIn this highly readable and sobering exploration of how religions including our own grow, falter and sometimes die, Jenkins adds a unique dimension to present day religious studies in a voice and style that non specialists can also appreciate Harvey Cox, Hollis Professor of Divinity, Harvard UniversityPhilip Jenkins always writes well on very interesting topics This time his topic is than interesting it is essential reading for anyone with any interest in the history of Christianity Rodney Stark, author of The Rise of ChristianityPhilip Jenkins book is a tour de force in historical retrieval and reconstruction, a work of scholarly restoration that strikes an overdue balance in the story of Christianity It is studded with insight, with the story presented in a lively and lucid style Lamin Sanneh, Professor of World Christianity and Professor of History, Yale Universityan exceptionally fine study of a great swathe of Christian history, hugely important in the Christian story but very little known This thoughtful, elegant and learned survey will remedy the neglect of a subject which students of religion absolutely need to know about Diarmaid MacCulloch, Professor of the History of the Church, University of Oxford and author of The ReformationPhilip Jenkins s marvelous new booktells the largely forgotten story of Nisibis, and thousands of sites like it, which stretch from Morocco to Kenya to India to China, and which were, deep into the second millennium, the heart of the church The Weekly StandardJenkins is one of America s top religious scholars Forbes persuasively and cogently argued marvelously accessible for the lay reader and replete with fascinating details to help personalize the ambitious sweep of global history Jenkins undertakes This is an important counterweight to previous histories that have focused almost exclusively on Christianity in the West Publishers Weekly, starred reviewJenkins s well crafted new volumeis not only a welcome addition to the literature on Christianity as a truly global religion, to which he has already made substantial contributions, but also an invitation to retrieve a
