This is a story about people--not politics.

Elias Chacour grew up in a small Palestinian village in Galilee. When tens of thousands of Palestinians were killed and nearly one million forced into refugee camps in 1948, Chacour began a long struggle with how to live out his personal spirituality. In Blood Brothers, he blends his riveting life story with historical and biblical research to reveal a little-known side of the Arab-Israeli conflict, touching on questions such as

· What caused the turmoil in the Middle East?
· What does biblical prophecy really say about these people and this place?
· Can bitter enemies ever be reconciled?

This international bestseller offers hope and insight that can help each of us learn to live at peace with one another even in a world filled with tension, terror, and misunderstanding.

"From my perspective, both as a believer and as a diplomat, I take hope and comfort in knowing that amid all the hatred, destruction, and death, Father Chacour continues his patient work, softening one heart at a time."--James A. Baker III, US Secretary of State, 1989-1992

"An accurate, moving account worthy of careful attention."--Wes Pippert, former UPI bureau chief
