Yossi Klein Halevi: At the Entrance to the Garden of Eden: A Jew's Search for Hope with Christians and Muslims in the Holy Land

(Nonfiction, 336 p. 2001)

In 1998 the American-born Israeli Halevi, an Orthodox Jew, embarked on a spiritual quest to engage with believing Christians and Muslims in the Holy Land and transcend his own prejudices and resentments. Integrating spirituality with politics, history, psychology, and theology, he creates an engaging, empathetic, and enduring perspective on the possibilities of reconciliation and healing.
