"Occupied with Nonviolence brings home the pain and central convictions that animate Christian nonviolence and activity today. Here Jean Zaru vividly paints the complex realities faced by all parties in Palestine - Jews, Muslims and Christians, Israelis and Palestinians, women and men. Yet even as Zaru names the common misunderstandings of the history, present situation, and current policies of the parties there, she vividly articulates an alternative: a religiously motivated nonviolent path to peace and justice in the world's most troubled region."--BOOK JACKET.
