    In a remote valley north of Kabul, in August 2010, American peacemaker Dan Terry and nine other aid workers were attacked and killed in an event that made worldwide headlines. Why would one man take his family, follow faith and calling into the political and religious maelstrom of Afghanistan, and through years of war and strife believe he could make a difference? In Making Friends among the Taliban, childhood friend Jonathan Larson retraces Dan's nearly 40 years in Afghanistan, and through interviews and eye-witness accounts, relays Dan's incredible way of daily living.

    Story

    I was impressed by this story of Dan Terry and his life as a cross cultural peacemaker in a country that many Americans would consider to be full of enemies and without potential. The metaphor of a Christian being more Muslim than the Muslims shows some of the common humanity that Christians share with people of other faiths. I appreciate Jonathan Larson bringing this story to us. I hope that this story inspires others to live lives that defy common understandings of other people.
