Sami Awad’s vocation is to tear down walls in the Middle East. As executive director of the Holy Land Trust, based in the West Bank town of Bethlehem, Awad works to build bridges between Palestinians and Israelis—and between Christians, Muslims, and Jews—as a necessary path to peace in the region. He was interviewed by Sojourners editor Jim Rice and associate editor Molly Marsh this winter while Awad visited Washington, D.C., to address a gathering of Evangelicals for Middle East Understanding.
