Editorial Reviews

"Any scholar wanting background information on Christianity in any region of the world will find this book very helpful."  (Ecclesiastical History, 1 July 2013)
"I do think, however, there is some merit in understanding how the world views Christianity at large. Because of that, I do recommend this resource with the qualification that the reader realize that this book is painting with extremely large strokes the Christian faith."  (Christian Book Notes, 1 July 2013)

"It should prove to be a valuable resource for both classroom and specialist use.  Summing Up: Recommended.  Upper-level undergraduates through researchers/faculty."  (Choice, 1 October 2012)
