Following the pattern of a journey from Galilee to Jerusalem, Mary Grey’s new book offers biblical inspiration for the search for peace and reconciliation in Israel/Palestine. Along the way, Mary Grey explores core Christian concepts of redemption, atonement and resurrection, pursuing a spirituality of perseverance and steadfastness (sumud) derived from Middle Eastern Christians.
Full of real-life stories of people living through conflict in well-known Holy Land locations, and with helpful discussion questions at the end of each chapter, The Resurrection of Peace is sure to stimulate both thought and action during Lent and Easter, and beyond.
Mary Grey is a Roman Catholic liberation theologian, and Visiting Professor at St Mary’s University College, Twickenham, London, and Honorary Professor at the University of Winchester. Her new book, The Resurrection of Peace, is a companion and follow-up to The Advent of Peace, (SPCK 2010).
