Iran, located at the heart of the Eastern world, is home to the world’s oldest civilizations, richest of cultures, and now, some 75 million people. But Iran (also known as Persia) was also once home to a large Christian population. With the 7th century Islamic conquest and centuries of invasions, wars, empire changes and persecution, by the 20th century, Christianity in Iran was virtually non-existent. After the Islamic Revolution of 1979, the nation of Iran took a turn for the worst. Civil liberties became nonexistent, and a once proud people were reduced to living under the tyranny of total Islamic nationalism. That was thirty years ago. The original revolutionaries are now disillusioned with the system they helped instate, and the children are rioting in the streets. And, reports are that Christianity is exploding with millions of believers now meeting across Iran in secret, for fear of the strictest of Islamic regimes.
