Description

Jean Zaru, the longtime activist and Quaker leader from Ramallah, here brings home the pain and central convictions that animate Christian nonviolence and activity today.

Zaru vividly paints the complex realities faced by all parties in Palestine — Jews and Muslims and Christians, Israelis and Palestinians, women and men. Yet even as Zaru eloquently names the common misunderstandings of the history, present situation, and current policies of the parties there, she vividly articulates an alternative: a religiously motivated nonviolent path to peace and justice in the world's most troubled region.

Endorsements

"When people in the United States ask, 'where are the voices of reason and compassion among the Arabs?' Please tell them to read Jean Zaru's book. Integrating deep Christian consciousness and the righteous indignation of the Palestinian people, her gentle voice is both inspiring and instructive for all of us in the west."
—Rabbi Michael Lerner
Editor Tikkun; Chair, Network of Spiritual Progressives


"Jean Zaru's life represents the tragic aspect of contemporary Palestinian history and its possibility, if only Jews and Palestinians will heed her compelling voice. What could have been if such a voice had been heeded? Reading JEan Zaru's life story places the present Israeli-Palestinian starkly before us. Is Jean Zaru's way the way forward?"
—Mark H. Ellis,
University Professor of Jewish Studies, Baylor University
