Christians in Iran and Iraq

I’ve read and listened to a few things recently about Christians in the Muslim world. I’ve heard from several different sources over the last few years that ex-Muslims report having dreams that persuade them to become Christians. Here are some things that I have read recently:

  • Peter Leithart linked to Joel Rosenberg’s blog post about a Daily Caller article, in which an Iranian defector claimed that the Iranian authorities are flummoxed by a large number of Christian converts. You can get all the salient information from Leithart and Rosenberg without making the unfortunate discovery that I made: that the editors of The Daily Caller apparently believe that the only way to gain a readership is to plaster their site with scantily-clad women.
  • Leithart also summarized the contents of a Charisma magazine article about Muslim conversions, especially in Iraq and Iran.
  • Eric Metaxas and Brian Mattson both wrote about the case of Saeed Abedini, an Iranian-American pastor, who was recently arrested in Iran. Metaxas’ article contains a link to an interview that Breakpoint’s John Stonestreet did with Abedini’s wife Naghmeh and the American Center for Law and Justice’s Tiffany Barrans.
