In early August, something happened in Lebanon that no one expected— a massive explosion destroyed many of the city’s predominantly Christian neighborhoods. Lebanon is known as a place where Christians and Muslims live together in relative peace. What will happen next?

This is the first in a three-episode series on the worldwide persecution of Christians.
