The Resurrection of PeaceBarry Vendy, via The Good Book Stall
Like any pilgrimage, this one into the land that is called holy by Christians, Jews and Muslims will lead the reader deeply into reflection, with extremely thoughtful "Questions for Reflection" at the end of each chapter, and into what Professor Grey calls "a new seeing". Her passion for justice is infectious, as is her pain over the injustices suffered by the Palestinian people. The Bible inspires her as she seeks answers for "peace and conflict resolution" in Israel / Palestine. That is certainly the main issue that Mary Grey tackles, though she does refer to some other questions including the situation of Christians in the "Arab Spring" since 2010. She believes that Jesus' message was "socially, politically and economically revolutionary" and that the "Jesus movement" sought the "transformation of the Roman regime of violence and oppression into an alternative society of justice, peace, forgiveness and love". Also, Resurrection hope underlies the pilgrimage. I especially appreciated the sections on "sumud" (a spirituality of "steadfastness, persistence and patient endurance"), the Via Dolorosa, and the Bedouins of the Negev desert. Further, Mary Grey names many inspiring campaigners for peace and justice, and refers the reader to Sabeel, a movement of liberation theology among Palestinian Christians, with which she is associated. Definitely a book to read if you care about the Holy Land today!
