In the footsteps of St Thomas – the Apostle of the East


41 in stock

Christianity is full of tales of amazing bravery, endurance and faith. But the most remarkable by far are the legends of St Thomas, from his birth in Galilee to Taxila (modern day Pakistan) who took the Gospel to India, according to traditions which first appear in the late 2nd century AD. In this book Serena Fass tells us the story with a traveller’s eye and deep empathy across the roads of ancient Parthia and Gandhara to the palm forests of tropical South India. As a traveller's tale it takes some beating, but of course it is much more! With beautiful illustrations and evocative photographs the reader is provided with a unique insight into the journey of the Saint and the places where he founded Christianity.
