For Ages on ages, Turkey has been a land where seers have seen visions and prophets have spoken prohesies. The country, or more precisely the Asiatic portion of it known today as Anatolia or Asia Minor, has been endowed with the homes of people and the locations of events in both the Old and the New Testaments.
Only the land of Palestine has been linked more closely to the Bible than Anatolia. From the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers that flowed out of Eden to the churches of Revelation, from Adam and Eve to the Apostle John, biblical images, places, people, the words and their actions have conferred a unique legacy on Turkey. Here Abraham heard the call of God to worship Him alone; here Christians received their name; and from here Christianity spread into the Western World.
The gifts and the responsibility of these visions are the heritage of Christians everyhere.
