They Say We Are Infidels: On the Run from ISIS with Persecuted Christians in the Middle East
“Everywhere militants were blowing up Christians, their churches, their shops. They threatened them with kidnapping. They promised to take their children. The message to these ‘infidels’: You have no place in Iraq. Pay a penalty to stay, leave, or be killed.”

Sweeping from Syria into Iraq, Islamic State fighters (ISIS) have been brutalizing and annihilating Christians. How? Why? Where did the terrorists come from, and what can be done to stop them? For more than a decade, journalist Mindy Belz has reported on the ground from the Middle East, giving her unparalleled access to the story no one wants to believe. In They Say We Are Infidels, she brings the stark reality of this escalating genocide to light, tracking the stories of real-life Christians who refuse to abandon their faith―even in the face of losing everything, including their lives.
John Cortines
Author
After launching his career in the Texas oilfields, John Cortines has recently decided to advance the biblical message of generosity full-time, joining the leadership team of Generous Giving. He worked for oil companies in several locations across Texas and Louisiana, most recently as a petroleum engineer for Chevron, where he conducted complex decision and financial analyses of deepwater oil and gas projects. He holds engineering degrees from Texas A&M University (BS, 2010) and KAU of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia (MS, 2011), and an MBA from Harvard Business School (2015). In the research that informs God and Money John brought his pragmatic analytical approach to a question that has always intrigued him: how should wealthy Christians handle their money? The result was a simple yet radical framework for managing wealth that John found transformative. Once content to live simply, give some, and save aggressively to attain personal security, he now sees active giving—sharing resources joyfully and generously—as central to a way of life that serves God. John is married to Megan and together they have a growing family.
