The deep fissures and complicated history of Palestine-Israel can make this area of the Middle East difficult to understand. What is Palestine-Israel? offers concise answers to complex questions and revealing glimpses into peacebuilding efforts underway in the region. Organized around the most frequently asked questions about Palestine-Israel, former Middle East worker Sonia K. Weaver presents straightforward treatment of the crisis, theological discussions around the conflict, and a window into the crucial peacebuilding work occurring in the region. While the book grew out of the experience of Mennonite Central Committee (MCC), a relief, development, and peacebuilding ministry of Anabaptist churches, it also pays attention to the work of other mission and peace agencies in the country. Organized by theme, What is Palestine-Israel? offers helpful maps and photographs that give readers an intimate view of the area and profiles of Palestinian and Israeli peacebuilders. Includes resources for further study.
