"This well-conceived collection of eight essays on various aspects of Christian history and communal life in Jerusalem and Israel is a valuable contribution to a wider understanding of a very complex and problematic political context...I would have no hesitation in recommending the book to anyone interested in Eastern Christianity and the Holy Land. It contains a wealth of information that is not, to my knowledge, to be found in any other study currently available." Robert B.
