Oxford-educated Arab journalist Atallah Mansour here recounts the history of the Arab Christian community in the Holy Land for the past two millennia. To protect their ancient churches from desecrating marauders on horseback, worshipers in the Holy Lands sealed up most of their doors centuries ago to keep the invaders outside their sacred halls. Thus the term, "narrow gate churches" was used to describe Christian churches in the land of our savior's birth. This fascinating history of how Christians have survived and prospered here down through the centuries under stressful conditions is a tribute to the faith of this remnant community and to the divine intervention on their behalf that helped them survive rather miraculously under hostile regimes and straitened conditions.
