Missions to, from and within the Middle East have shaped the region in
multitudinous ways since the 19th century. This collection of sixteen
essays from a range of international scholars explores this immensely
significant subject using a range of disciplines, including theology,
history, and geography. This interdisciplinary approach helps to provide
a thorough overview of the often complex and multi-layered topic of
missions and the Middle East in contemporary research, and will be of
interest to all who seek to improve their understanding of the role of
religion in the Middle East.
