It isn’t every day that an eyewitness to today s most explosive Middle East conflicts eloquently records his adventures and then shares them with the rest of us. For years, Chris Mitchell has been the Middle East Bureau Chief for CBN News, based in Jerusalem. And in recent months he has intrepidly made his way from one international hot spot to another from a bloodstained murder site in a quiet Israeli neighborhood to a dusty Iraqi village where ISIS is lurking in the shadows; from a desecrated Coptic sanctuary to a secret house church where newly-baptized Iranian coverts radiantly celebrate their new lives; from a sprawling refugee camp in Kurdistan to a stunning archeological dig in Galilee. Mitchell has posted TV reports from all these places and countless more. But now, in an extraordinary page-turner, Destination Jerusalem, he takes us on a breathless journey along with him. As gifted a writer as he is a reporter, Mitchell describes the sights, sounds and smells of war and its victims elusive yearnings for peace all this in locations most of us can only imagine. Thankfully, he has depicted one site after another in stirring detail, always viewed through the lens of his authentic Christian faith. Chris Mitchell leads us into the presence of such world leaders as Vladimir Putin and Benyamin Netanyahu, Barak Obama and others. He weighs their words against scriptural authority; he positions their earthly powers against a backdrop of biblical prophecy. And then, with no less attention, he also introduces us to weary warriors, unsung heroes, terrified children and broken-hearted survivors. And for a few poignant moments we are able to glimpse the world through their tearful eyes. The explosive nature of today s Middle East is, for most of us, both intriguing and terrifying. If you re in search of a deeper insights into this troubled region, Destination Jerusalem is the book you ve been waiting for. Not only is it a must-read, but once you open the cover, author Chris Mitchell has made sure that you won t want to put it down until you ve finished reading the very last page. –Lela Gilbert, Author Saturday People-Sunday People, Blind Spot, Adjunct Fellow at the Hudson Institute
I was very excited to see that Chris Mitchell, the Middle East bureau chief for the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) has just released this book.

This book goes to the heart of the matter, addressing current events unfolding now throughout the region and giving solid application for how Christians are to respond. Get this one right away. –Joel Richardson, Author Mideast Beast, The Islamic Antichrist-New York Times best Selling Author
A spiritual earthquake erupted in the Middle East this year and the shock waves were felt around the globe. Christian persecution became the new normal, and terrorist groups like ISIS rose to wield enormous destructive power in the region that is once again is spinning out of control. Major developments occurred daily. And Chris Mitchell was there. Name the place in the Middle East and Chris was front and center as the events unfolded. Destination Jerusalem is a enlightening and thrilling ride through the headlines that matter today. This is the book that gives you the real story about ISIS in Iraq, Hamas vs. Israel and the ethnic cleansing of Christians in the Middle East. Destination Jerusalem is a must read to understand the world we live in today. Get a copy for your pastor too. Chris, you have done it again! Your insight and passion for the truth is refreshing.
