Mary Grey takes the reader on a contemporary Lenten journey through a series of profound theological reflections on the search for peace and reconciliation in Israel/Palestine. Along the way she explores the core Christian concepts of redemption, atonement and resurrection from the perspective of justice-making in the real world, pursuing a spirituality of perseverance and steadfastness ('sumud') deriving from her work with Middle Eastern Christians. The book draws on all four Gospels and the book of Revelation, providing biblical inspiration for the quest for peace. It focuses on the real-life stories of people living through conflict in well-known Holy Land sites in Galilee and Jerusalem - and other biblical places, such as Mt Sinai, and explains the issues and initiatives around the Jewish-Christian-Muslim search for peace. It also offers feminist perspectives on redemption/atonement within this context. This book is ideal Lent reading, with study materials and questions for group discussions or personal reflection.
