Editorial Reviews


"An impassioned and thoughtful reflection on the meaning of the cross in the context of present-day Palestine and the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.... Gripping." --Donald Senior, in The Bible Today

"In this profound book, Mitri Raheb and Suzanne Watts Henderson explore the mysterious redemptive potential of the cross as it is experienced in the unjust suffering of the Palestinians, who are truly one of the 'crucified peoples' of our world. Though the darkness of the cross is at the center of this story--for both Jesus and the Palestinians--they help us remember that it is not the end of the story." --John Neafsey, author, Crucified People

"Don't read this book if you are content with an escapist faith that requires no real sacrifice of you on behalf of others, even enemies. Only read it if you want to grow in the kind of knowledge that matters and the kind of faith that leaves no room for apathy or excuses. By their words and example, each of the authors has rekindled my commitment to find God in the most unexpected places." --Rev. Dr. Jaime Clark-Soles, Perkins School of Theology
