The Land Cries Out
Theology of the Land in the Israeli-Palestinian Context
Imprint: Cascade Books
"This book plunges the reader into the complexities and intransigencies of this most urgent and most difficult of all of our public problems . . . the Holy Land. The discussion provides a rich, representative spectrum of opinion and puts acute hermeneutical differences fully on exhibit. The book inches toward the legitimacy of 'the other,' and one author dares to conclude that it is not history or land that finally matters, but 'it is in the face of the other that we find the image of God.' This collection adds more voices to the ongoing struggle. Like other voices in the cacophony, these voices fall short of the reconciliation that the cry of the land requires."

"The Land Cries Out is a valuable anthology of theological perspectives of both Palestinian and Israeli followers of Jesus on the issue of 'the Land.' The representative national (and international) voices serve as a helpful resource to acquaint one with the theological complexity of the Body of Christ in Israel/Palestine. The anthology illustrates how both regional politics and theological influences affect each community's reading of Scripture and offers some constructive attempts to escape the theological impasse between both communities."
