Recently the English edition of the non-fictional book by our Editor-in-Chief Augin Kurt Haninke has been released. The Heirs of Patriarch Shaker is about the Syriac Orthodox Church leaders who have opposed and damaged the Assyrian national identity of their community over the last hundred years, mainly through their subservience to ruling powers in the Middle East. In today’s program the author discusses on the necessity of reaching out to the international public in English, especially to the academic world.
He also elaborates on the new documents that this edition contains compared to the Swedish edition, that was released two years ago. Furthermore, he informs us on reactions of several scholars and personalities on this book. He is praised for this unique study and brave stand to tell the truth on an important subject, which the church historians themselves have been refusing to expose to all us.
