This book has arisen from a regular slot on Premier Radio called The Olive Tree, where Julia Fisher interviews a person or couple from the Holy Land, Arab or Jew, who are actively engaged in reconciliation. Some powerful stories have emerged. The basic theme of the book is that, despite all the dire reports, the Christian church in Israel and the areas of Palestine is growing amongst both Arab and Jewish communities. As this happens, Arabs and Jews are meeting, becoming friends, working together. This book collects some of these stories with the aim of showing that reconciliation is possible through the Cross, no matter how powerful the childhood indoctrination or how great the social pressure.
