JERUSALEM, Israel - For the past 12 years, CBN Middle East Bureau Chief Chris Mitchell has reported on stories from Israel and across the region.
Now he's recorded some of his experiences in a new book called, Dateline Jerusalem: An Eyewitness Account of Prophecies Unfolding in the Middle East.
Mitchell spoke with CBN's Scott Ross about his experiences and the events unfolding across the volatile Middle East.
The veteran reporter moved to Jerusalem with his family more than a decade ago. In doing so, he recalled the words of a friend who said, "You don't choose Jersualem, Jerusalem chooses you."
Mitchell said the news he covers is more than individual stories. He said he sees a theme emerging that ties world events to the final battle for Jerusalem.
"You know, 2,000 years ago it was said that all roads lead to Rome. Two-thousand years later, I would feel that all roads are leading to Jerusalem," he told Ross.
"And whether it's Christians praying for the peace of Jerusalem like never before," he continued, "Or if it's about Jews that are coming back to this city, and fulfilling a dream of 2,000 years, or if it's radical Muslims who want to see Jerusalem as the capital of a caliphate - all roads, for good and evil, seem to be leading back here."
