"Gilbert's new book about Israel and the Middle East is spectacular achievement and a pleasure to read. It manages to combine several things all in a graceful whole: an insightful, vivid and affectionate portrait of Israel's people and their good and just life as they go about building their still young country. It thus makes concrete what would be lost should it succumb to the existential menaces it faces. At the same time it shows what is already in the process of being lost - the very ancient and still vibrant Christian communities of the Middle East - the Sunday People, who are now on the road to suffering the same fate in Muslin countries that the Saturday People - the Jewish refugees from Muslim countries - experienced before. In both regards it makes the general issues of our day - especially the impact of radical Islam -- more accessible through the stories of the people they affect. Remarkably all this is achieved through the powerful personal story of a Christian woman who came to Israel as a curious visitor and is now a sojourner sharing the charms and difficulties of its life."
Very educational, informative, and well written.
