Eastern Customs and Idioms of the Bible: The Teachings of Orientalisms
As a convert to Christianity from Hinduism, Bishop Karnam Chengalvaraya Pillai, D.D. came to the Western world on a singular mission: to teach the Eastern culture of the Bible. Although Christianity is generally considered a Western religion, it is important to recognize that the Bible itself was written and set in the Eastern world, and it must be viewed through the light of that Eastern window. It is primarily the area referred to at varying times as the Near East, Middle East, or Orient where the people and events described in the Bible resided. Resultantly, in order to really understand the Bible, one must become knowledgeable of the culture, manners, and customs of the Eastern world. This book opens the doors of enlightenment into the culture that provides the setting for the lives, events, and tenets central to Christianity. It is a book that warrants more than a cursory reading. For the serious students of the Bible, it will occupy an important place in their reference library.
