Meriam Ibrahim is the 27-year-old mother of two who is being held in a Sudanese prison awaiting execution.
Her crime? She refuses to renounce the religious faith she was raised with, as the daughter of a Christian mother. She is also married to a Christian man.

Mal Fletcher discusses this in this interview for BBC Radio, with host Will Gompertz and fellow guest, author Katherine Rundell.

Next Wave is certainly making a huge difference, bringing out the truth about a Christian worldview, equiping the church & helping give believers the insight to stand against a tide of postmodernism. adrian, United Kingdom
