"Ask yourself 'Might not diplomats who disagree behave differently, if instead of coming together being accountable to their governments' policies, they came together believing they were accountable to God?' Driven by faith to explore this theory, Canon Andrew White has fostered the most promising politico-spiritual reconciliation process in the Middle East. In so doing, he has led Iraqi Clerics to an awakening to their own accountability toward their parishioners. Diplomats who deny the role of religion in political discourse should stay away from the Middle East. Here religion and politics are inextricably linked. Andrew White's work provides vivid evidence that engaging religious leaders is central to any hope of ultimate success in waging peace in the Middle East."
Bud McFarlane, former National Security Advisor to Ronald Reagan
"Working in areas of conflict is dangerous and difficult as many journalists, aid workers, diplomats and others know to their cost. Andrew White is an Anglican Priest who has chosen to live and work in Iraq. This is his account of a tragedy which, in the opinion of many, ought to have been avoided."
Terry Waite CBE
"I have known Andrew White for many years and have great admiration for him as a peacemaker, bringing the love of Jesus Christ to one of the most dangerous places in the world. In the face of personal ill-health and threats to his life, he continues his extraordinary work with determination and unrelenting enthusiasm. Not everyone is called to such a ministry but Andrew acts as if he was born to it."
"Andrew White's commitment to working across faiths to secure peace in the Middle East has resulted in this extraordinary book. It charts not just his bravery but that of the people of the Middle East who want a fairer, more secure and more just world. It's a lesson to us all."

Any solution to peace in that part of the world and in Iraq in particular must deal with religious issues and come about through religious leaders. Respected by Shias and Sunnis alike, as well as Jews, other Christians, Iraqi military forces and also the US military, Andrew is well equipped to lead in this. A wonderful book; I look forward to reading others by him!
