Winter 2011/12 Bible Lands

The upheavals that are bringing change to the Middle East have continued since our summer issue. Caught up in all this change are the Christians in the region, who are not often mentined in the news headlines, unless some major tragedy takes place such as the killing of 24 Coptic Christians in Cairo at the beginning of October. One of the consequences of the change and unrest is that a long-term trend of the emigration of indigenous Christians from the region has increased. This edition of Bible Lands contains reports on the worrying exodus that is happening across the Middle East.
