"I could not put The Syrian Christ down until I finished reading the last word in it. It is a magnificent book which should be of special interest to those seeking a better understanding of the psychological, social and cultural background to the teachings of Christ."
Dr. Aida Warah, University of Ottawa

  "This is an interesting book with an enticing title. Its benefit should be obvious particularly among biblical scholars and students of divinity."
His Beatitude Gregorios III Laham, Patriarch of Antioch and the East, for the Melkite Catholic Church.
