A review of Mindy Belz’s new book “They Say We Are Infidels: On the Run from ISIS with Persecuted Christians in the Middle East.”

Thank you to the Philos Project for an excellent, unique experience in Israel. I greatly appreciate the fair and insightful way they handled complex issues, and am especially grateful at how careful they were to show us the people – the real people, the diverse people – who live in that land. Philos is working hard to create a new conversation about Israel and the Middle East and they’re doing a terrific job. I commend their work wholeheartedly.
