I Am a Palestinian Christian: God and Politics in the Holy Land: A Personal Testimony

Mitri Raheb explores the recent history of the Palestinian Christians, and the complex meeting of the world's three major monotheistic religions. Clearly and without rancor, his book situates the continuing plight of Palestinians in the unique history of the Palestinian Christians, the national and regional struggles since World War II, and the rich yet complex juncture of the world's three major monotheistic religions. In the pains and hopes of his people, Raheb reveals an emerging Palestinian Christian theology.

"Here is an important new theological voice raising crucial issues of biblical exegesis and theological interpretation. Raheb's work in contextual Palestinian theology is also highly relevant to Western Christians, particularly those wrestling with post-Holocaust theology and Jewish-Christian relations."
--Clifford Green
Hartford Seminary


"Raheb wishes Western Christians to understand the Palestinian Christian's reality, of which they have been deeply ignorant and whom they have injured and betrayed in that ignorance. He also grapples with how Palestinian Christians can develop a local theology that can be both truthful and helpful in mediating the conflicts between Israel and the Palestinians and among Christianity, Judaism, and Islam."
