Widely cited as a source for reliable information on "Nestorian" missionaries, this study begins with a history of the church in Persia (Iran) and its missionary focus. "Nestorianism" is traced from Arabia through central and eastern Asia and finally into southern India. Stewart addresses the absorption of the "Nestorians" by the Roman Catholic Church in Asia and assesses the by-products of its "Nestorian" heritage. Stewart was writing in the 1820s, and he addresses the situation of the church in his own day. This dynamic account of the often misunderstood "Nestorian" work has become a main reference for those interested in the question of the missionary zeal of the Church of the East.

John Stewart, M.A., Ph.D., was a missionary with the United Free Church of Scotland Mission in Madras for 35 years. He served as Secretary to the Madras Mission Council. Nestorian Missionary Enterprise is his most celebrated work.

History of Eastern Christianity

ISBN: 978-1-60724-343-4
This book is a classic in the history of the Oriental Churches, which are sometimes portrayed as heretical in general church history books, if mentioned at all. Written by a Copt, it portrays the history of the faith of these non-Chalcedonian Churches with first-hand knowledge of their traditions. The author covers Alexandrine Christianity (the Copts and the Ethiopians), the Church of Antioch (Syriac Orthodox), the “Nestorian” Church of the East, the Armenian Church, the St. Thomas Christians of South India, the Maronite Church, as well as the Vanished Churches of Carthage, Pentapolis, and Nubia.
