Publisher's Description

As the vicar of St. George's Church in Baghdad, the only Episcopalian church in Iraq, Canon Andrew White has worked with those at the highest levels of authority in Iraq, for both Westerners and Iraqis. Now, as political and military solutions continue to fail, Andrew offers a different approach to making peace in the Middle East-speaking as a man of faith to men of faith. In The Vicar of Baghdad he tells the story of his work to create peace through God.

Publisher's Weekly

As head of a foundation for relief and peacemaking and vicar of an Anglican church in Baghdad, White has gained the ear of major power brokers, negotiated hostage releases and coordinated interreligious dialogue in the Middle East. Yet his memoir does not fit neatly into the canon of peacemaking literature, in part because he sees no problem with aligning closely with the U.S. military and accepting Pentagon funds for his interfaith peace summits. “Peacemaking of the old woolly-liberal kind no longer works, if it ever did,” he writes, and criticizes “bottom-up” approaches to reconciliation as ineffective in the Middle East. White's most controversial claim—that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction—goes unsupported, and some will find his support for the U.S. invasion ironic, inasmuch as it exists alongside interreligious statements that he helped to broker proclaiming a “total rejection of all violence.” White's stories of finding common ground between enemies and his commitment to finding out how religion can “advise, rather than supervise, politics” are truly admirable, however, and not lost entirely amid the book's other, more self-serving assertions.

    Canon Andrew White is a wonderful man of God with an unshakable Christian faith and who dares to believe that bringing enemies together to learn each other's stories, hurts and dreams, can bring about peace in the Middle East. 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!
