Trend Watch

Perspective on the buzz

There's violent persecution facing the world's believers. Christianity Today's summary observes the findings:

The overall restrictions on religion in nearly 200 countries and territories have reached a six-year high, and Christians are harassed in more countries than any other religious group (though Muslims are a close second).

Those tracking freedom of religion issues or the persecution of Christianity and other faiths will want to read both Pew's full report and CT's assessment (which gives helpful context for the numbers).
