Event details:

The Middle East is the birthplace of Christianity and home to some of the world's most ancient Christian denominations. Some experts believe there are as many as 10 million Christians in the region. However, there have been more killings of Christians and burnings of churches in Egypt following the Arab Spring than people were aware of. Life is unsustainable for Christians in northern Iraq, and tensions in Syria are nearing breaking point. Is the vacuum left by the end of autocratic regimes being filled by extremists? What does the Arab Spring ultimately mean for the future of Christian minorities in the Middle East and beyond?

The Speaker:

Malkhaz Songulashvili is the Archbishop of the Evangelical Baptist Church of Georgia. He also serves as the Director of the Betheli Humanitarian Association. He received his initial university training in archeology when Georgia was within the Soviet Union and formal theological studies were denied. Malkhaz has written textbooks of Old and New Testament stories and has translated scripture into Georgian. He has also translated four of the Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, The Magician’s Nephew, The Horse and His Boy, and Prince Caspian. Malkhaz is heavily involved in inter-faith relations that has been recognized both within and beyond the Republic of Georgia, and in September 2005 was awarded the Lambeth Cross by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
