142 BROCKEY, LIAM MATTHEW. The Visitor: Andr Palmeiro And The Jesuits In Asia.
Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England: 2014. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
In an age when few people ventured beyond their place of birth, Andr Palmeiro left Portugal on a journey to the far side of the world. Bearing the title "Father Visitor," he was entrusted with the daunting task of inspecting Jesuit missions spanning from Mozambique to Japan. A global history in the guise of a biography, The Visitor tells the story of a theologian whose extraordinary travels bore witness to the fruitful contact—and violent collision—of East and West in the early modern era. In India, Palmeiro was thrust into a controversy over the missionary tactics of Roberto Nobili, who insisted on dressing the part of an indigenous ascetic. Palmeiro walked across Southern India to inspect Nobili's mission, recording fascinating observations along the way. As the highest-ranking Jesuit in India, he also coordinated missions to the Mughal Emperors and the Ethiopian Christians, as well as the first European explorations of the East African interior and the highlands of Tibet. Orders from Rome sent Palmeiro farther afield in 1626, to Macau, where he oversaw Jesuit affairs in East Asia. He played a crucial role in creating missions in Vietnam and seized the opportunity to visit the Chinese mission, trekking thousands of miles to Beijing as one of China's first Western tourists. When the Tokugawa Shogunate brutally cracked down on Christians in Japan—where neither he nor any Westerner had power to intervene—Palmeiro died from anxiety over the possibility that the last Jesuits still alive would apostatize under torture. Liam Matthew Brockey is Associate Professor of History at Michigan State University. "An account of the fascinating life of [Andr] Palmeiro, a Portuguese appointed by his superiors in Rome in 1617 to inspect Jesuit missions around the world."—Mark O'Neill, The South China Morning Post "A substantial, scholarly biography of a figure who has hitherto only been a footnote in Jesuit history."—Thomas Tallon, The Tablet "This story transcends Palmeiro's life… Indeed, it is Palmeiro's own letters and his lively accounts of his journeys, along with other sources, that Brockey puts to excellent use in his account of Jesuit enterprise in the Portuguese Empire in maritime Asia… In crafting Palmeiro's life story Brockey brilliantly accomplishes his goal of shedding light on different historical contexts as well as the problems and questions of the early modern world… This well-written and enjoyable book illustrates how Palmeiro's final days until his death marked the end of a generation of Jesuits whose dreams materialized in the expansion of Christianity in Asia."—Ana Carolina Hosne, Times Higher Education "This excellent book describes the Jesuit Asian missions at a crucial time through the eyes and reports of Andr Palmeiro (1569-1635), a Portuguese Jesuit… Brockey offers many insights in good evocative prose. Telling the story of the missions and disputed matters through Palmeiro is very effective, not least because it enables readers to see how the Asian missions functioned on a personal and practical level."—P. Grendler, Choice "A richly colored baroque portrait of a philosophy professor turned world traveler, the Portuguese priest Andr Palmeiro. Its subject spent two decades as a plenipotentiary 'visitor' representing the highest authorities of the Jesuit order in mission areas extending from Mozambique and Ethiopia through Goa and Malabar to China and Japan. The political and cultural challenges that Palmeiro faced in that vast and varied space are treated extensively. The Visitor is a display of rigorous and inventive historical scholarship, founded in a mastery of the archives. Brockey writes with imagination, scope, and style."—J. S. A. Elisonas, Indiana University "Liam Brockey does what an excellent scholar should in a pioneering work. He helps us understand Palmeiro's work and its importance for the history of the world. He also achieves what seemed impossible from the evidence available: vividly and convincingly, he evokes much of Palmeiro's spiritual and intellectual life."—Felipe Fernandez-Armesto, author of Our America

147 BROWN, BRIAN ARTHUR; RUSHDIE, SALMAN (FOREWORD). Noah's Other Son: Bridging The Gap Between The Bible And The Qu'ran.
The Continuum Publishing Company, New York: 2007. First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
After the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, Muslims became Satanic figures in the eyes of many Westerners and many religious leaders looked upon Islam as an evil religion that promoted terrorism and holy war. Many Christians and Jews, who had inherited centuries of prejudice against Muslims, caricatured Islam, turning it from a religion of beauty with millions of faithful adherents to an ugly and scabrous form of political militancy. In his compelling new book, Canadian pastor Brian Brown engages in conciliatory dialogue with Christians, Jews, and Muslims in an attempt to recover the beauty and value of Islam for the West. Noah's Other Son helps Jews and Christians understand the role that several biblical figures from their own traditions play in Islam. Do Christians know, for example, that Jesus in the Qur'an was speaking about Muhammad when he promised to send an Advocate or Comforter? Who would have imagined that Noah had a rebellious son who refused to get on the ark and drowned? This is amazing news to religious people, in North America at least. What else is there that could help bridge the gulf between Jews, Christians, and Muslims in our time? There has never been a greater potential for misunderstanding between the Christian, Jewish and Muslim faiths, as the treacherous situation in which the world now finds itself. Brian Brown examines scriptural characters as a way of seeing Islam in its pure light, without the distortions of history or individual failings. Noah's Other Son provides an excellent starting point for Christian-Jewish-Muslim dialogue.
