Persecution. It’s been the story of the Church from the beginning. And when it comes to Christianity, few places on the planet experience more persecution than the Middle East. Is there any backing down in the near future? Or will Christians continue to struggle? This week on The Land and the Book, we’ll look at the future of persecution in the Middle East. Our guest, Todd Nettleton of Voice of the Martyrs. The Land and the Book. Join us.
