Not only does Brockey show erudition and scholarly handling of his subject, he has also written a work that is very accessible to the inquisitive lay reader.
Readers can easily use this book as an excellent springboard into other scholarly works on Chinese Christianity during the period. It would be interesting to see how the well documented sense of communal action, termed "hui", that Brockey describes in his book could or could not be traced through subsequent Chinese history and may have been co-opted by the Communists in the final overthrow of the Chinese monarchy.
The author has made history real through detailed examples of the how the Jesuits traveled, lived, learned Chinese, converted literti and peasants to Christianity, and eventually died on foreign shores far from the college halls of Evora, Portugal. Brockey has given academia a unique window into the lives of the men who made the mission to China a success for Rome - even if for only a short time.Journey to the East: The Jesuit Mission to China, 1579-1724 Overview
