about

From the author of the New York Times bestseller Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor comes a new edition—with a new and updated foreword—of his brilliantly observed memoir and unprecedented and remarkable spiritual journey.

“One of the most important spiritual memoirs of our time.”—Krista Tippett, host of the radio program, On Being

While religion has fueled the often violent conflict plaguing the Holy Land, Yossi Klein Halevi wondered whether it could be a source of unity as well.

Editorial Reviews

“The political landscape of the Middle East has inspired many books, but few have focused on the intersection of its religious paths as healing territory. This is where Jerusalemite Halevi, a transplanted American Jewish journalist, breaks ground…. Readers of all religions will appreciate the honesty of this spiritual walkabout.”
