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...
In April 2002 I wrote an article on the phenomenon of Christian weblogs, and then started a list of blogs. This list has since been transformed into the blogs4God web portal, and has moved off my site. However, for those interested in the subject, I have created this page of resources.
* The blogs4God web portal.
* My original Christian bloglist, as it existed in late July, 2002, when it was last updated.
* My April 2002 article, Blogging for the Lord.
Here are further commentaries I have written on the subject:
