Christians in the Holy Land


(The World of Islam Festival Trust Publisher), London 1994

There has never been a more comprehensive and authoritative account of the Christian Church in the Holy Land than is found in this collection of studies. It includes the most recent research findings of sociologists, and the most up-to-date and informed comments of theologians and other scholars. Above all else, it allows the Holy Land Churches to speak for themselves.
