Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"In his latest book Marc Ellis asks the defining question for Jewish life today: 'Can injustice, represented by Jewish domination of Jerusalem, be at the heart of the covenant?' Ellis's answer is that the covenant of Israel with God has been shattered by the creation of a state at the expense of Palestinian life in the land. It can only be renewed by a new ethic and practice of justice that reconcile these two people, who have become irrevocably linked together in the land, either for good or for ill." ---Rosemary Radford Ruether Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary

"Marc Ellis has demonstrated great courage, integrity, and insight in the very important work he has been doing for years. It has been an inspiration for all us of." ---Noam Chomsky Massachusetts Institute of Technology

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Pastor.James Mercer on October 13, 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Have been enjoying Marc H. Ellis's book very much! It is highly intelligently written, with truth and honesty about both sides of the issues, Jewish and Palestinian points of view. His suggestions and idea's for healing between those to peoples is very sound and gives hope, especially from the Jewish point of view that does not ignore faults in his own race, but gives honest report of errors of both nationalites.

This book is very inlightening of any possiblity of healing the divisions in Israel.
