This study helps to provide an understanding of the Syrian Orthodox Church in the more recent past. In particular, it seeks to relate how that Church experienced contact with the Church of England. As will be seen, the exchange was often fraught with misunderstanding. Christians in the Middle East have suffered by having co-religionists who represented a culture and power often regarded by Middle Eastern states as hostile. The book begins with Patriarch Peter III, who showed great interest in contact with Anglicans and ends with Archbishop Davidson, who expressed great interest in the Christian minorities in the Middle East.
This limited edition of fifty copies honors the Patriarchal Silver Jubilee of Mor Ignatius Zakka I. Bound in gold stamped cloth, with image embossing in the front of Patriarchs Peter III and Abdullah (from paintings in Lambeth Palace) and Patriarch Zakka, this edition is printed on 80# paper, with beautiful end sheets, headbands, and a bookmark.
