""These translations give a valuable insight into a world that is largely hidden from view. They are as welcome as they are readable."-Catholic Historical Review

"The Orthodox Church in the Arab World 700-1700 presents an excellent introduction to an unknown field of Christian literature."-Journal of the American Oriental Society

"All of the texts chosen for this volume are interesting in their own right, but the collection of these sources into a single volume, with helpful introductions and bibliographies, makes this book an invaluable resource for the study of Arabic Christianity and, indeed, the history of Christianity more broadly."-Hugoye: Journal of Syriac Studies

"This volume reveals a strain of Christianity that has been scarcely known for far too long. It is also timely, in that it opens up a world that, once simply forgotten, is now under threat of extinction as never before."-Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations

"This book is impressive in both content and presentation. The editors have marshaled a team of leading scholars in the field to produce a series of translations of significant Christian Arabic works, and have added an introduction that forms a comprehensive history of Christians within the Muslim world. They have produced a book that will be of immense help to the further understanding of Eastern Christianity and the history of relations between Christians and Muslims."-David Thomas, University of Birmingham "

""This collection makes an extremely important contribution to the history of medieval Christianity and the history of the medieval Near East, inasmuch as such Arabic Orthodox materials are not widely available. There is, so far as I am aware, no other comparable book on this subject in English." -Stephen J. Shoemaker, University of Oregon"
