"Elias Chacour, a Palestinian-born Christian and Israeli citizen, is a living symbol of hope amid the fear and conflict that daily disrupt the lives of the people among whom he lives and works as Archbishop of Galilee." "In this book, Elias Chacour describes his struggle to be a light in the darkness of hatred and terror, to see friends and enemies alike as God sees them, to break the endless cycles of violence and retaliation. Yet for all his struggle, he is full of hope and his joy is irrepressible."--BOOK JACKET.
-Publisher

Based upon conversations recorded by a French journalist, this book mixes autobiographical reflections with a critique of the contemporary state of the Middle East. It tells the stories of many individuals working for peace and of his own work, especially with children and students of the school and college he has founded. Fr Elias Chacour, author of the bestselling books Blood Brothers and We Belong to the Land, is the Archbishop of Galilee. Seeing the lack of educational opportunities for Palestinian youth, he created a school open to all local children which opened in the early 1980s. The Mar Elias Educational Institution and now caters for 4,500 students, representing all major religions and ethnicities in Israel.
