About-

Art Gish offers an inside view of the work of Christian Peacemaker Teams in the Palestinian village of At-Tuwani. Through vivid stories told in journal fashion, Gish offers a candid but sympathetic portrait of traditional Palestinians in the shadow of the Israeli occupation of the West Bank. In this sequel to his well-received 2001 Hebron Journal, Gish graphically documents the everyday struggles of Palestinians living in the midst of conflict with Israel. With a sense of hope, he also considers the possibilities for reconciliation between Palestinians and Israelis.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Art Gish’s personal account of his time in the village of At-Tuwani offers us a renewed vision of discipleship, interfaith cooperation, and nonviolent striving for justice. Art, and the Palestinian villagers whose stories he shares, understand that the true path to reconciliation requires walking the way of justice. Through Art’s eyes, and through the personal stories of those he interacts with, the occupation can be seen as what it is: a massive injustice not only for the Palestinians, but for those Israeli soldiers and settlers whose participation in it threatens their humanity.”

Rev. Naim Ateek, Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center



“This book breaks every single stereotype people have of the Middle East in general and of Palestinians in particular. It tells stories that you will never hear on the evening news or read in the paper. But more than the news it illuminates, this book tells the stories of courageous people from around the world and from within the conflict who are dedicated to peaceful nonviolent resolution of the Palestinian Israeli conflict.”

Daoud Kuttab, Palestinian journalist



“In this book Art Gish provides an important snapshot of life in and around the South Hebron hills over the last few years. His account exposes the detail of everyday life in a Palestinian culture under attack from all sides while also revealing the larger politics and issues that structure this reality. The author knows his subject well.”

Bio(s)-

Arthur G. Gish (1939–2010) was active in peace and social justice work for over fifty years, beginning with work as a conscientious objector with Brethren Volunteer Service in Europe (1958–60). He participated in the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s, and has opposed US involvement in every war since his youth.



Born and raised on a farm in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Gish was reared in the Church of the Brethren. For thirty-six years, until his death in a tragic farm accident in 2010, he and his wife, Peggy Faw Gish, were members of New Covenant Fellowship, a communal farm near Athens, Ohio.



Gish began working with the Christian Peacemaker Teams in the occupied West Bank in 1995, out of which this book took shape. Gish is also the author of The New Left and Christian Radicalism (Eerdmans, 1970), Beyond the Rat Race (Herald Press, 1972), Living in Christian Community (Herald Press, 1979), At Tuwani Journal: Hope & Nonviolent Action in a Palestinian Village (Herald Press, 2008), and Muslim, Christian, Jew: The Oneness of God and the Unity of Our Faith, a Personal Journey in the Three Abrahamic Religions (Cascade Books, 2012).
