Abstract:

"From Syria to Egypt, northern Iraq to the Gaza Strip, ancient communities that were the birthplaces of prophets and saints are losing any living connection to Christianity, the religion that once was such a characteristic feature of their social and cultural lives. In The Vanishing, journalist Janine di Giovanni writes about the last traces of small, hardy Christian communities that have become fearful of outsiders and where ancient rituals are quietly preserved amid numerous threats. Di Giovanni's personal stories and conception of faith and hope are intertwined throughout the chapters"--
