Incredibly disappointing. This guy is so immersed in the middle east and working for peace/reconciliation (and all credit to him for that) that his account of his work just comes across as a mass of details and names and is incredibly confusing. Shame

The book only really comes alive when he is talking about St. Georges church. What has happened there is amazing and the writing is warm, with lots of personal detail. In the rest of the book there are too many things that cannot be spoken about because it would put people in danger if it were. It becomes a rather dry lists of people, meetings and journeys. The danger of the work is always present, and there is no doubting its importance to the future of the country. From the readers perspective ...more

You know when reading this that Andrew's stories could fill an encyclopaedia. Truly remarkable, heart-wrenching and inspiring testimony of a life lived fully out on a limb for G-d. You could not write this. Proof that G-d is still working, miraculously behind the harrowing headlines of the Middle East.

Excellent personal story of Bro Andrew calling and ministry in the Middle East. Gives good insight to what is going on and the complexity of trying to find peace. He is a unique man of the Lord.

It was good to read how Andrew has helped facilitate the bringing together of different religious leaders so that they can come to an agreement on what is NOT acceptable to any of them. Enlightening read, but I didn't find it particularly stirring.

An incredibly inspiring man and a good insight into the Iraq situation.
