Arthur G. Gish records a moving story of the turmoil and suffering of the Palestinian people, the agony experienced by Israelis, and a vision of hope and new possibilities of reconciliation between Jews, Muslims, and Christians.
From 1995 to 2001, Gish experiences living with Muslim families, engaging in nonviolent actions with Israelis and Palestinians, and struggling to find creative responses to situations of injustice. Selected excerpts from his journal tell of the Christian Peacemaker Team (CPT) work and give a vision of how small peacemaking groups can make a difference in violent conflicts.
An online study guide is available for this title.
"Art Gish’s testimonies are characterized by honesty and veracity, providing a firsthand description of a harsh situation. I hope his work can be an eye-opener for those who have been misled." —Khalid Amayreh, Journalist and Islamist leader
"The CPTers dared to speak out, and for that we are grateful. Let us pray together to find, as Art says, ‘strength and courage to act in calmness and love.’" —Nora Arsenian Carmi, Armenian-Palestinian Christian, Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center
"As an Israeli Jewish rabbi, it seems to me that the work of Art Gish and his fellow Christian peacemakers is today’s real-life application of In His Steps." —Arik W. Ascherman, Executive Director, Rabbis for Human Rights
