American Evangelicals in Egypt:
Missionary Encounters in an Age of Empire
Heather J. Sharkey

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"Sharkey deftly weaves American, Egyptian, and British history based on archival research in both English and Arabic. She impresses the reader with her knowledge of each field and convinces her audience of the interconnectivity of each history in an age of state building and imperialism."--Lisa Pollard, American Historical Review

"Sharkey's excellent study of the history of one particular mission brings into sharp focus the transformation of almost all missionary activity in the course of the past hundred and fifty years."--Hugh Wybrew, Journal of Ecclesiastical History

"Sharkey's is a consequential contribution to the history of modern Egypt and an important addition to missionary history. For this reason, and many others, students of modern Egypt, missionary history, and Christianity in the Middle East will find this book to be an essential read."--Anthony Shenoda, Review of Middle Eastern Studies

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"A fine piece of historical scholarship: soundly argued and finely nuanced. It is a fair and balanced portrayal of the relationship between American missionaries and Egyptians--both Christian and Muslim."--Dana L. Robert, Boston University

"This book reexamines the history of modern Christian missions and makes an important contribution to new ways of understanding the underlying issues involved in the so-called dialogue of civilizations."--John Voll, Georgetown University
