The conflict between Israel and Palestine is at the center of a firestorm of political controversy, religious zeal, and bloodshed in the Middle East. Many feel that they have a biblical obligation to 'stand with Israel' - but do we really understand the conflict? And is Zionism the true path to peace? An American Jew, Mark Braverman was transformed by witnessing firsthand the devastating consequences of the struggle between Israelis and Palestinians to bring peace to their land. From the bustling communities on either side of the Jerusalem barrier, to the historical intricacies of the Holocaust and South African apartheid, to the foremost voices in conflict resolution today, Braverman outlines the conflict's origins, gives Christians a biblical and historical basis for supporting both the state of Israel and Palestine, and offers a path of action both at home and abroad to initiate peace. Illuminating and provocative, this book will challenge what readers think they know about Israel and Palestine, and inspire them to help bring God's peace to the Holy Land.
Mark Braverman is an internationally known author and activist on the role of faith traditions in bringing healing and peace to the Israel/Palestine conflict. A Jewish American with deep family roots in the Holy Land, Braverman was transformed while traveling in Israel in 2006 by witnessing the occupation of Palestine and by encounters with peace activists and civil society leaders from the Muslim, Christian and Jewish communities. He now devotes himself full-time to writing, speaking and action related to a just peace in Israel/Palestine. Braverman is the author of "Fatal Embrace: Christians, Jews, and the Search for Peace in the Holy Land." More of Mark's writings can be found at www.markbraverman.org.
