    Christians have lived in Palestine since the earliest days of the Jesus movement. The Palestinian church predates Islam. Yet Palestinian Christians find themselves marginalized and ostracized. In the heated tensions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the voices of Palestinian Christians are often unheard and ignored. This remarkable book provides an opportunity to hear the realities of life on the ground from a leading Palestinian pastor and theologian. 

    Munther Isaac gives the perspective of Palestinian Christians on the other side of the separation wall surrounding most Palestinian West Bank cities today. Isaac laments the injustices suffered by the Palestinian people but holds out hope for a just peace and ways to befriend and love his Jewish and Muslim neighbors. In contrast to the dominant religious and nationalistic ideologies and agendas for the region, he offers a theology of the land and a vision for a shared land that belongs to God, where there are no second-class citizens of any kind.

    Preaching for the Glory of God.

    This book contains theology that ought to be taught wherever Christian theology is offered. My experience reading it has begun a transformation in my theology for the better.The most powerful thoughts in this book are biblically inspired. If you need hope or inspiration read and apply or at least confront the topics discussed within it.

    Christian Palestinians can teach us a LOT!

    I listened to this book in about 3 sittings. The content is clearly presented, many historical facts have been documented before while others were new to me. Munther Isaac's narrative radiates meekness and reality, and a genuine love of neighbor, whomever they are, without falling into the syrupy tunnel vision we so often hear from Christians when they talk about Israel, surely an Israel they know very little about. Certainly growing in the West Bank would give someone a completely different perspective.

    Isaac addresses some of the most serious fallacies, lies, slanders and fabrications surrounding myth about the holy land and the people who live there, on both sides of the wall. Particularly beneficial was how he presented some of the daily realities of being bot a Palestinian and a Christian, in a Muslim and Jewish majority.

    Many may find surprisingly helpful and liberating the parts where he looks at some of the myths surrounding Christian eschatology involving Israel, following them to their logical conclusions. We have been taught wrongly by western teachers about a land and its people in light of God's plan of redemption.

    To the religious critics who may wander here - there is not a single antisemitic sentiment expressed or suggested by the author of The Other Side of the Wall, He addresses his readers (listeners) as adults living in a complex world and able to challenge and gain awareness.

    I loved this book! I foresee myself listening to it again multiple times, something made easy by the outstanding performance of the reader Neil Shah. And I'll look forward to more works by this author to land on Audible.

    Think about it: Pentecost, local people and from all over the region and beyond. The Church expanded exponentially, under Roman military occupation and apartheid, evangelism, conversions, then the destruction of Jerusalem and exodus of Jewish people, including disciples.

    So, who remained in the land for centuries to till and build and farm and population? The non-Jewish population. For nearly 2,000 years. This means that some of the present-day Palestinians are descendants from the early Church disciples.

    QUOTE FROM HISTORY (dot com): "Throughout history, Palestine has been ruled by numerous groups, including the Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Fatimids, Seljuk Turks, Crusaders, Egyptians and Mamelukes.

    From about 1517 to 1917, the Ottoman Empire ruled much of the region.

    When World War I ended in 1918, the British took control of Palestine. The League of Nations issued a British mandate for Palestine—a document that gave Britain administrative control over the region, and included provisions for establishing a Jewish national homeland in Palestine—which went into effect in 1923."

    So it is the Palestinians who have suffered the brutality of ruthless and racist regimes for millennia, all the way back to many centuries BC. Who better to teach us, Christians, to love, than Christian Palestinians devoted to following Christ in one of the most mind-bending and heartbreaking social prison as living under an apartheid regime? Just like their ancestors did for centuries?

    I hope the Church as a whole will gain wisdom and understanding, and we can find ways to support - without violence but with courage - our brothers and sisters living on the other side of the wall. They are writing us, calling us, waving at us, pleading to God that we will hear and pray, and learn the truth about them. Let it be so.

    GET THIS BOOK! :) Get it for the sheer education of it, for the insights and the paradigm shifts.
