The secondary title of this book is "The Twilight of Christianity in the Middle East". It consists of a series of essays on the Christian communities in Iraq, Gaza, Egypt and Syria. The author is a Catholic, but deals with all versions of Christianity, especially the different varieties of Eastern practice. She spoke with locals in each country, nearly all requesting that their names not to be published, including those now living overseas.
