Welcome to Madang Podcast.

About Madang:

Madang is the outdoor living room of the world. Here, we invite you to sit and tune into unreserved, remarkable conversations with renown authors, leaders, public figures and scholars on religion, culture and everything in-between.

This has been a dream of mine for many years and now it is. reality. Please join me at madang.

This is the sixteenth episode of Madang where I converse with Dr. Mitri Raheb who is the president of Dar al-kalima University, speaker and public theologian. The most widely published Palestinian theologian to date, Raheb is the author of more than forty books. He is widely sought-after speaker all over the world. His latest book The politics of Persecution:  Middle Eastern Christians in an Age of Empire.  

The Politics of Persecution, provides an interesting and deep perspective on this contested region and examines how Middle Eastern Christians survived successive empires and how they resisted. This book examines this history of Middle Eastern Christians not so much as one of persecution but as one of resilience.

Conversations on Ottomon, British and French Empires, west Asia, persecution, resilience, White Jesus and so much more.

Praise for The Politics of Persecution:

Mitri Raheb’s  The Politics of Persecution offers a trove of information and analysis for any Christians fascinated by the Holy Land and its neighbors. But beyond this, it will be of great interest to general readers of all kinds, basically for anyone interested in the emergence of the Modern Middle East. Raheb addresses many topics and issues that are presently barely known to nonspecialists, and he does a real service in describing so many of these episodes in lucid and approachable terms.  The Politics of Persecution is ambitious in scope, thoroughly researched, and amply deserving a wide readership.– Philip Jenkins, Distinguished Professor of History, Baylor University
