It isn't every day that an eyewitness to today s most explosive Middle East conflicts eloquently records his adventures and then shares them with the rest of us. For years, Chris Mitchell has been the Middle East Bureau Chief for CBN News, based in Jerusalem. And in recent months he has intrepidly made his way from one international hot spot to another from a bloodstained murder site in a quiet Israeli neighborhood to a dusty Iraqi village where ISIS is lurking in the shadows; from a desecrated Coptic sanctuary to a secret house church where newly-baptized Iranian coverts radiantly celebrate their new lives; from a sprawling refugee camp in Kurdistan to a stunning archeological dig in Galilee. Mitchell has posted TV reports from all these places and countless more. But now, in an extraordinary page-turner, Destination Jerusalem, he takes us on a breathless journey along with him. As gifted a writer as he is a reporter, Mitchell describes the sights, sounds and smells of war and its victims elusive yearnings for peace all this in locations most of us can only imagine. Thankfully, he has depicted one site after another in stirring detail, always viewed through the lens of his authentic Christian faith. Chris Mitchell leads us into the presence of such world leaders as Vladimir Putin and Benyamin Netanyahu, Barak Obama and others. He weighs their words against scriptural authority; he positions their earthly powers against a backdrop of biblical prophecy. And then, with no less attention, he also introduces us to weary warriors, unsung heroes, terrified children and broken-hearted survivors. And for a few poignant moments we are able to glimpse the world through their tearful eyes. The explosive nature of today's Middle East is, for most of us, both intriguing and terrifying.

A Christian refugee sobs, Jesus, forgive them! after fleeing the deadly rampage of Islamic State fighters. A Yazidi mother tells of the horrific fate her late son suffered at the hands of these marauding Muslim terrorists. An Israeli woman recounts how Hamas jihadists rose like zombies from the beach near her house to launch a terror attack on her kibbutz. Sirens wail over the skies of Jerusalem. Beheadings make global news, shake the leaders of Western powers, and shape public policy and military strategy. Against this precarious backdrop, Irans mullahs quietly prepare their deadly nuclear cocktail. Sounds like a plot from a spy novel, but its all too real!
ISIS stunned the world with its Islamic blitzkrieg that swept through Syria and northern Iraq and declared an Islamic caliphate for the first time in nearly one hundred years. Once again, Christians bore the brunt of this menace. These militants forced tens of thousands of Christians to flee their ancient homes and gave them four grisly choices: pay the Islamic tax for infidels, leave, convert, or die by the sword. Hamas also sparked a fifty-day war demonstrating that their agenda remains the same: End of the Jewish State. Israel found herself once more in the vanguard against radical Islam. Her future is wedded to our own since jihadists see Israel as the little Satan and the U.S. as the big Satan.
CBN News Middle East Bureau Chief Chris Mitchell landed on the front lines of these conflicts. In Destination Jerusalem, he brings you firsthand accounts of the men, women, and children caught in these fiery trials. Their story lines resound with the grand themes of our age: the rise of radical Islam, the ongoing persecutionsome say ethnic cleansingof Christians in the Middle East, and the centrality of Jerusalem in world history.
