Narrow Gate Churches: The Christian Presence in the Holy Land under Muslim and Jewish Rule
Narrow Gate Churches: The Christian Presence in the Holy Land under Muslim and Jewish Rule

Oxford-educated Arab journalist Atallah Mansour here recounts the history of the Arab Christian community in the Holy Land for the past two millennia. To protect their ancient churches from desecrating marauders on horseback, worshipers in the Holy Lands sealed off most of their doors centuries ago to keep the invaders outside their sacred halls. Thus the term, "narrow gate churches" began to be used to describe Christian churches in the land of our savior's birth. This fascinating history of how Christians have survived and prospered here down through the centuries under stressful conditions is a tribute to the faith of this remnant community and to the divine intervention on their behalf that helped them survive rather miraculously under hostile regimes and straitened conditions. 327 pp.

Noam Chomsky has noted "the unusual, perhaps unique credibility" of Oxford-educated Atallah Mansour's account, "given his reputation, background and access to sources." Filled with fascinating anecdotes and informed analysis, this timely history is an important contribution to the discussion of how Christians and Arabs should be treated in the land of their birth.

Well-known author Atallah Mansour is the only Arab-Christian to be on the editorial board of a major Israeli newspaper and the first to write in Hebrew for Israel's newspaper, Ha Aretz. For over four decades this Galilean native has written extensively in Arabic, Hebrew and English. He lives in Nazareth with his wife near to their three grown children and their families.
