This book describes the history and development of the Orthodox Church in China from its origins in 1242 A.D., its Eastern Church forebears, and its development in the other nations of North Asia - Korea and Japan. The activities and achievements of the Orthodox Church, especially since the 17th century, have been understated in many historical studies of Christianity in China. This book details the nature and evidence of these early activities.
Dr. Kevin Baker is Unit Chair for the Chifley Business School of La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia.Review:
"This is a clear and intensely readable account of an area of history that has been virtually overlooked for a long time... this book deserves a place on the bookshelves of historians and anyone concerned with the development of relationships between Christianity and the countries of north Asia and their prospects for the 21st century." - Dr. Harry Simmons, University of Sydney, Australia"
