Widely cited as a source for reliable information on "Nestorian" missionaries, this study begins with a history of the church in Persia (Iran) and its missionary focus. "Nestorianism" is traced from Arabia through central and eastern Asia and finally into southern India. Stewart addresses the absorption of the "Nestorians" by the Roman Catholic Church in Asia and assesses the by-products of its "Nestorian" heritage. Stewart was writing in the 1820s, and he addresses the situation of the church in his own day. This dynamic account of the often misunderstood "Nestorian" work has become a main reference for those interested in the question of the missionary zeal of the Church of the East.

John Stewart, M.A., Ph.D., was a missionary with the United Free Church of Scotland Mission in Madras for 35 years. He served as Secretary to the Madras Mission Council. Nestorian Missionary Enterprise is his most celebrated work.
