New book explores Christian roots in Palestine

Rev. Mitri Raheb is president of Bright Stars of Bethlehem in the West Bank, Palestine and Pastor of Christmas Lutheran Church in Bethlehem. He is on a U.S. tour to discuss his new book, Faith in the Face of Empire. Rev. Raheb’s basis for the book is that since Jesus Christ was a “Palestinian Jew”, we should examine the Bible “from the perspective of the people of Palestine.” (Photo: Wikicommons/Living Stones of Palestine)
