Elite forms of peacemaking that do not embrace the basic needs of average people on all sides are bound to fail. The complete neglect of deeper cultural and religious systems in the peace process is now apparent, as is the role that this neglect has played in the failure of the process.

Building on his earlier book, Between Eden and Armageddon, Gopin provides a detailed blueprint of how the religious traditions in question can become a principal asset in the search for peace and justice. He demonstrates how religious people can be the critical missing link in peacemaking, and how the incorporation of their values and symbols can unleash a new dynamic that directly addresses basic issues of ethics, justice, and peace. Gopin's analysis of the theoretical, theological, and political planes shows us what has been achieved thus far, as well as what must be done next in order to ensure effective final settlement negotiations and secure, sovereign, democratic countries for both peoples.

Summary of "Holy War, Holy Peace: How Religion Can Bring Peace to the Middle East"
Recensie s Yet this new book by an American rabbi with years of experience in grass-roots conflict resolution in the region offers such a fresh angle from which to view the struggle that it demands attention Gopin's prescriptions ring true as a legitimate, life-affirming, even hopeful complement to official negotiations. They may, in fact, be essential before negotiations can genuinely become fruitful. He has written extensively on the subject and practised it in the Middle East for 20 years, facilitating peace initiatives between religious groups in Israel and Palestine.
Where most observers might say religion was the cause of the problems in the Middle East, Gopin says religion is the route to peace. Sign in. Get my own profile Cited by View all All Since Citations h-index 13 10 iindex 15 No verified email - Homepage.

Marc Gopin here presents and examines these exciting new readings, and argues passionately for a far greater integration of Middle East peace processes with thereligious communities of the region.
The religious peoples, Jewish, Christian and Muslim, must become a part of new paradigms for coexistence between Israelies and Palestinians. And these new paradigms must include the unique ways in which monotheistic peoples develop social relations, heal old wounds, and transform enemies into allies.
Drawing on his own personal experience with religious-based peace initiatives in Israel and Palestine, Gopin writes movingly of the individuals and groups thatare already attempting such reconciliations. It is imperative, he says, that an alliance be forged between secular and religious methods of peacemaking.
The combination of these methods, Gopin believes, will yield a rich and creative model for the reconciliation of ancient enmities among Jews,Christians and Muslims.
