Publisher's Summary

As a child, Elias Chacour lived in a small Palestinian village in Galilee. When tens of thousands of Palestinians were killed and nearly one million forced into refugee camps in 1948, Elias began a long struggle with how to respond. In Blood Brothers, he blends his riveting life story with historical research to reveal a little-known side of the Arab-Israeli conflict, touching on questions such as:

  • What behind-the-scenes politics touched off the turmoil in the Middle East?
  • What does Bible prophecy really have to say?
  • Can bitter enemies ever be reconciled?

Now updated with commentary on the current state of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as well as a new foreword by Lynne Hybels and Gabe Lyons, Blood Brothers offers hope and insight that can help each of us learn to live at peace in a world of tension and terror.

Grabs attention & shifts paradigms

Elias Chacour's story intrigues and flows, which makes reading easy and fast. But his story and experiences will shift most of our paradigms about who the Palestinians are and how they've been treated, which makes his story hard too.

An important and inspiring book!

Blood Brothers is the real-life story of a man of peace who follows the teaching of Jesus rather than descending into hate. Just read it. It does a body good. And a spirit, too!

Quite Enlightening - a real eye opener

Once I started reading I couldn't put the book down. It is riviting; it has caused me start researching the real history of the formation of Israel from different views. Excellent reading.

A complete paradigm shift in thinking and knowing more!

A former colleague, who now lives in Lebanon, recommended this book. His wife and him run a mission for the Lebonese youth. They are Christians. I thought I had a relative idea of what the whole debate was about. This changed everything for me. And I love the enduring message

I'm an athiest and I still thoroughly enjoyed this book. If you are interested in middle eastern conflict, this is a must read.
