Egyptian Christian faces trial for handing out Bibles

A Coptic Christian in Egypt arrested for handing out Bibles will today face a hearing before the prosecution after having his detention extended.

According to the weekly Watani newspaper, Medhat Ishaq was arrested by police on October 6 for giving away Bibles to passers-by and “attempting to persuade people to join the Christian religion.” He had nine Bibles in his possession at the time.

I will be praying for this man. God bless him.
