  • Description: Al recently attended the Under Caesar’s Sword conference in Rome, an international conference on the Christian response to persecution.

+  Which Muslim Countries are Models for the Future?

  • Description: We’ve discussed the horrible suffering endured by Christians in countries like Pakistan and Iraq. What is life like in other Muslim-dominated countries? Indonesia is the largest Muslim nation in the world and most Christians there are able to lead peaceful lives. What is the relationship between Arab and non-Arab Muslim countries? Can other countries eventually function more like Indonesia? We’ll discuss it with Dr. Paul Marshall.
