The Coptic Martyr of Cairo
The latest international thriller from best-selling author Martin Roth
Four Americans in Egypt on an archaeological dig. In the blistering summer heat they are fighting amongst themselves. Then they unearth a body. It is an old priest who has been murdered.
The gruesome discovery sets in train a sequence of events that leads to a deadly Islamist attack on the ancient church where the Americans are working.
The leader of the expedition, Professor Rafa Harel, must decide whether to withdraw his fractious team or continue on a mission to unveil a controversial series of wall paintings, knowing that these images have the power to spark even greater violence.
Meanwhile, watching over all of them is a dreamy young Egyptian Christian named Amir. His only quest in life is to become a martyr...
I can't help feeling that the Christian revival in China is a major story, one that could have a massive impact, not only on the church but on all civilisation. It's a story that, by and large, is being ignored by the mainstream media.
Is This Revival?
Long decades of decline have made many Christians in the West defensive and insular. Could we be missing a major movement of God in our midst - the surge in Chinese congregations?

With God on Their Side
In 1989, Chinese students and workers confronted the authorities in Tiananmen Square. The government called in the army, and in a brutal crack-down thousands of demonstrators were killed. The leaders were forced into exile. Writer Ian Buruma tracked them down, and he made an interesting discovery – a surprising number have become Christians. In this article I look at the leaders of the uprising. Is it not intriguing that their initial goal was to change the government - now they are working to change people’s hearts? I conclude: These people almost overturned the Chinese Communist dynasty on their first go. What might happen now that they have God on their side?
