This is a deeply thought provoking book I ordered it because I have personally been involved in Jewish Muslim Christian dialogues trialogues in the USA and I resonated with the reviews I had read What surprised and saddened me was the extreme difficulty that Yossi had in even finding people willing to dialogue in the Middle East I had been told that Israel was a segregated society not officially but socially but I did not realize how deeply the mistrust runs Villages and monasteries that are within visual sight of each other might as well be on different planetsTo cross the cultural divide can literally mean taking your life inot your handsAuthor Yossi Klein takes that risk With the help of various unconventional guides he meets with Sufi shaykhs Armenian priests Catholic nuns and many others hoping to communicate on the level of the soul rather than politics Sometimes he succeeds sometimes not On so many occasions history intrudes with its memories of past brutalities Crusades Inuisitions the Holocaust This is not a sugar coated utopian view of peace but a scathingly honest chronicle of one seeker's search for common ground in a troubled land With each new encounter Yossi struggles with his own anger distrust and fear as did I when I read the book Definitely a must read for everyone who is or wants to be involved in interfaith dialogue
