Description
Information
A Jew's Search for God with Christians and Muslims in the Holy Land.

A brilliantly observed memoir of an unprecedented and remarkable spiritual journey.

While religion has fuelled the often violent conflict plaguing the Holy Land, Yossi Klein Halevi wondered whether it could be a source of unity as well. To find the answer, this religious Israeli Jew began a two-year exploration to discover a common language with his Christian and Muslim neighbours. He followed their holiday cycles, befriended Christian monastics and Islamic mystics, and joined them in prayer in monasteries and mosques in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza.

This book traces that remarkable spiritual journey. Halevi candidly reveals how he fought to reconcile his own fears and anger as a Jew to relate to Christians and Muslims as fellow spiritual seekers. He chronicles the difficulty of overcoming multiple obstacles - theological, political, historical, and psychological - that separate believers of the three monotheistic faiths.

And he introduces a diverse range of people attempting to reconcile the dichotomous heart of this sacred place - a struggle central to Israel, but which resonates for us all.
