When an Iranian president thunders a murderous threat or an obscure Turkish drunkard has a dream in Mecca or a Jewish couple from Brooklyn lands at Tel AvivAEs Ben Gurion airport, these events might seem disconnected. But theyAEre not. In "Dateline Jerusalem," CBN News correspondent Chris Mitchell connects the dots and unveils Jerusalem as the epicenter and crossroads of the spiritual, political, and, yes, supernatural worlds.
For thousands of years, JerusalemAEs powerful draw has always transcended simple economics, military strategy, and religious affiliation.

Yet Muslims are converting to Christianity in record numbers. "Dateline Jerusalem" untangles and chronicles all this through the riveting narrative of a Christian reporter in the upheaval of the modern Fertile Crescent.
