Reading the Torah Out Loud: A Journey of Lament and HopeMarc H. EllisFortress Press / 2007 / Trade Paperback$24.94
At once a memoir and an examination of conscience, Ellis' autobiographical starting points spark reflections on Jewish-Christian relations, liberation theology, religion and politics, and issues of justice in Israel and Palestine. His experiences also occasion meditations on solitude and solidarity, gratitude and alienation, memory and responsibilty. They exemplify how religiously committed persons, though exiled forever from yesterday's certitudes, can yet practice covenantal fidelity.

Not sympathetic to his definite political beliefs but not much clarity, except he does not seem to like Jewish people, but the book made me uncomfortable This is not a person I want to know.
