THE ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN CONFLICT
About the Holy Land is a resource packet for churches and other groups compiled by Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT). The packet of study and prayer materials about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict includes: fact sheets, a liturgy, studies on Zionism and the Bible, posters, and numerous news items and stories from CPT's January to April 1995 violence reduction project in Israel and the West Bank.
The materials cover several subjects, including treatment of Palestinian prisoners, the origins of terrorism, and the conflict in Hebron, the site of CPT's current Middle East peacemaking project. An annotated bibliography, glossary, and dateline provide background. The packet offers helpful resources for churches to study the complex issues involved in the conflict in the Holy Land.
