"St. Thomas is believed to be the man who brought Christianity to India. He travelled to West India, also reached the south. He landed in Kerala where he spread the gospel among Hindus. The Syrian Christians of Kerala trace their ancestry to upper-caste Hindus. How India turned a Christian Empire, a white man's burden? Growth of Christianity in the North-eastern India and the political unrest are some of the important aspects covered in this book." (jacket)
