As the Middle East has gone up in flames, no image so captured the clash of cultures as did the siege at the Church of the Nativity, where Palestinian gunmen faced off against the Israeli military for five weeks. As Muslims and Jews battled for control, the Christians were caught in the crossfire: endangered and largely forgotten, victims of somebody else's war. In The Body and the Blood, Charles M. Sennott examines the dwindling Christian communities of the modern Middle East. Why, he asks, is Christianity dying out in the land where it began? And what are the consequences, for the future of Christianity and for the Middle East itself? From Israel to Lebanon to Egypt to Jordan to the ancient cities of the West Bank, Sennott finds that the themes resonating today are the same as those that convulsed the region at the time of Christ. His frontline reporting is powerful and provocative, as he shines a new light on the Middle East.
