The conflict between Israel and Palestine is at the center of a firestorm of political controversy, religious zeal, and bloodshed in the Middle East. Many feel that they have a biblical obligation to 'stand with Israel' - but do we really understand the conflict? And is Zionism the true path to peace? An American Jew, Mark Braverman was transformed by witnessing firsthand the devastating consequences of the struggle between Israelis and Palestinians to bring peace to their land. From the bustling communities on either side of the Jerusalem barrier, to the historical intricacies of the Holocaust and South African apartheid, to the foremost voices in conflict resolution today, Braverman outlines the conflict's origins, gives Christians a biblical and historical basis for supporting both the state of Israel and Palestine, and offers a path of action both at home and abroad to initiate peace. Illuminating and provocative, this book will challenge what readers think they know about Israel and Palestine, and inspire them to help bring God's peace to the Holy Land.

"This is a passionate, insightful book which will change fundamentally the discourse of Christians and Jews, Christians and Muslims, Christians and all people of goodwill on this matter."--Allan Boesak, South African theologian and anti-apartheid activist "Mark's voice is unique and desperately needed today. I especially urge my fellow Christians, and most especially sincere Christian Zionists, to read A Wall in Jerusalem with an open mind and heart."--Brian D. McLaren, author/speaker/activist (brianmclaren.net) "I have much in common with my wise, loving Jewish friend, Mark Braverman-including our shared belief that Jesus calls us to be peacemakers. This is a beautifully-written, thought-provoking, important book."--Lynne Hybels, Advocate for Global Engagement "Compassionate, intelligent, and laying a groundwork for both courage and healing."--Fr. Richard Rohr, Franciscan priest and author "Braverman demands from church and synagogue a new level of accountability to the religious message of liberation found in Abrahamic traditions...In doing so, he affirms a pathway of loving resistance to occupation."--Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb, author of Trail Guide to The Torah of Nonviolence "An essential guide to anyone seeking to understand the current crisis between Israel and Palestine...giving us direction as to what we can do that will lead to lasting peace."--Steven W. Haas, speaker and activist "Across national, racial and religious lines, Braverman brings together powerful, passionate and courageous voices into a network of hope and healing for Palestinians and Israelis."--Rev. Naim Ateek, Director of the Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center and author of A Palestinian Christian Cry for Reconciliation "A deeply personal account of the author's journey towards advocacy on behalf of all Holy Land inhabitants and a renewed call for the church to take seriously the gospel's call to peacemaking and justice."--PRISM Magazine "A compelling, persuasive book to which attention must be paid...A summons that is filled with hopeful possibility for new peace-making initiatives beyond old ideologies."--Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary "A Wall in Jerusalem is what we call 'political theology' and it is a shining example of how it can be done well."--Gary M. Burge, Ph.D., Professor of New Testament, Wheaton College & Graduate School
