Adv. John Joseph Nalloor has written several biographies on Indian Church Leaders and on Indian Church History dating back to Saint Thomas, the apostle of Christ. His writings focus on documenting the rich and oral history of the Syrian Churches in India in English.
Realizing the modern reality of an ever-increasing number of church members around the world not fluent in Malayalam or born and raised up outside Kerala, Adv.
