The Church in the Middle East

It's not a book exactly, but at nearly 90 pages it's certainly longer than an e-mail, letter, or blog post: the recent document on the Church in the Middle East, issued after a synod in Rome of Catholic leaders on that topic: Ecclesia in Medio Oriente. Written by the current bishop of Rome, Benedict XVI, and released on the occasion of his recent visit to Lebannon, it addresses issues of concern to all Christians, but Eastern Christians above all for we are on the front-lines of the encounter with Islam.
