Excerpt from Life in the Orient: With Numerous Illustrations
The Orient! It is a magic word. It suggests the paradise home of our first parents. There mighty kingdoms were born and died, arts and sciences were developed and decayed, famous cities were built and destroyed, pagan monarchs reigned and ruined, Christian emperors flourished and vanished, and the sceptre of sultans swayed with almost undisputed power.
The Orient! How clear and blue her sky and how beautiful her landscapes! Above, the sky, the sun, the moon, and the stars shine with unequalled splendor; and below, nature has many marvels, noble mountains, rich fountains, graceful hills, rippling rills, crystal waters, beautiful valleys, fragrant flowers, and ever-green pastures.
More than this, the Orient suggests that the civilization which first sprang from her is now streaming from the West to the East. This land of the apostles has become the home of modern missionaries, and the chairs once occupied by Christian teachers of the East are now held by Christian professors of the West.
The map of the East has been considerably changed during the present century. The struggle between the Cross and the Crescent has never been so great, in many respects, as at present.
