While religion has fueled the conflicts plaguing the Holy Land, Yossi Klein Halevi wondered whether it could be a source of unity as well. To find the answer, this religious Israeli Jew began a two-year exploration to discover a common language with his Christian and Muslim neighbors, befriending them and joining them in prayer in monasteries and mosques in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza. Here Halevi candidly chronicles the difficulty of overcoming multiple obstacles—theological, political, historical, and psychological—that separate believers of the three monotheistic faiths, and introduces other people currently seeking to make peace in this sacred place.
