They Say We Are Infidels: On the Run from ISIS with Persecuted Christians in the Middle East

Thursday, December 7, 2017, 7:00-8:00 PM, Blocker Hall Auditorium  
              
From Syria into Iraq, Christians are being brutalized and killed by Islamic State fighters (ISIS). Journalist Mindy Belz has spent more than a decade reporting from the ground in the Middle East and has seen first-hand the stark reality of this escalating genocide. Based in part on those personal experiences, Belz explores the complex dynamics at play in war-torn Iraq and Syria and shares stories of Christians who refuse to abandon their faith - even in the face of losing everything, including their lives. Senior Editor of WORLD magazine, Mindy Belz has covered war in Africa, the Balkans, Afghanistan, and the Middle East.
