Issues of the Middle East/Questions of Christian Faithfulness in This Moment


PresbyReaders will meet on January 16th and 23rd in the Chittick Lounge at 11:00 a.m. to discuss And Then All Hell Broke Loose: Two Decades in the Middle East by Richard Engel. Written by NBC News’ Chief Foreign Correspondent, this volume will provide a basis for our discussion of the current Israeli-Hamas war. For more than seventy years the Holy Land has been disrupted by a seemingly intractable conflict between Israelis and Palestinians which has given rise to much violence and birthed Muslim extremism. The dynamics of the Middle East are now visited deeply into our own society with the increase of both anti-Semitism and Islamophobia in America. Begin reading now and plan to join us as we discuss the issues of the Middle East and the questions of Christian faithfulness in the current moment. Pastor Eileen will facilitate.
