Product Description

The Middle East continues to dominate international news and global politics. From the perspective of religion, however, many Americans think of that area only in terms of Muslims and Israeli Jews and are unaware of the extensive Christian communities that still exist there. Who Are the Christians in the Middle East? chronicles the history and current state of Christianity in this highly volatile region of the world.

Written by a married couple who has lived and worked a long time in the Middle East, this book is must reading for anyone who wishes to be au courant on the Christian dimension of the Middle East. The Baileys describe each Christian denomination now active in the region and provide country-by-country reports on the present situation of the church. They also discuss the history of the relationship between church and state in the Middle East, pointing out the challenges to the future of Middle Eastern Christians.

In addition to these larger discussions, the book features introductory chapters on the Middle East and Christianity written by David A. Kerr, a professor of Christianity in the non-Western world, and Riad Jarjour, general secretary of the Middle East Council of Churches. Also included are an informative timeline and short vignettes on people and places of special historical significance to the church in the Middle East.

Based on personal experience, official church documents, and extensive interviews, Who Are the Christians in the Middle East? looks at the conflicted Middle East region from a perspective that has received scant attention in the mainstream media.

    This book is an excellent overview of the various forms of faith in the Christian world from North Africa to Persia, whether it be Catholic, Orthodox, or Protestant.

    The one concern that I do have with this book, is that the author seems to feel that Christianity is a declining faith in the middle east, rather than growing. I have contact with Christians who minister in the middle east, and the picture that they paint is totally different. They say that persecution within the Muslim countries has opened doors for the Good News, and tens of thousands are responding.

    Like all reference books, it is written with a slant towards their understanding. That being said, I haven't read anything else that is as thorough as this. I especially liked the inserts that deal with various points of interest. I recommend this book!
