    Rev. Alex Awad’s recent book is interesting, informative, and inspiring. It is interesting because it recites the story of Huda Awad (pp. 17-88), a courageous and godly Palestinian mother who lived from the Ottoman period until the present century. Through her life, we encounter the tragedies and pains of war, and displacement. At the same time, we encounter the Palestinian-Israeli struggles through the eyes of a godly Christian woman who wants to rear her orphan children and provide for them. We can learn many things from her life.

    Bishop Botrus Mualem is a prolific Palestinian Christian author. He has written almost three dozens of books and many articles. In his latest book titled “Min Wahi Asa‘ah” Mualem reveals his life-long wisdom through interacting with important Palestinian sociopolitical and/or religious concerns. The title of his book literally means: inspired by the hour. It is mainly a compilation of short essays that appeared in Arab Israeli newspapers and/or were presented on special occasions. In these essays, Mualem brings recent events and contemporary concerns in an interesting dialogue with the biblical text as well as the wisdom of the church. Contemporary events are the source of his inspiration or writing.

    The purpose of this book is to respond to the claim that the land of Palestine belongs to the Jewish people.

    The strength of Khoury's book lies in asking the right questions and in analyzing the sociopolitical Palestinian struggles. However, Khoury fails to provide any convincing answers. In fact, his book is a monologue that does not seriously engage any arguments against his perception.

    In this book, you will find that Arabs are described as donkeys. This description is embedded in an amazing dialogue in the middle of the nineteenth century between a Greek Orthodox Bishop and his Russian conversant. The discussion is so relevant for today’s tensions between the Greeks and the Arabs. Also, Kildani fails to be objective in evaluating the Catholic Church (Where the author served as Bishop), and describes Evangelicals as usurpers.
