This is a fascinating, first-hand account of one man's deepening involvement over 6 years with a war-torn nation which has yet to find its place in a new order. White reflects on some profound issues that confront him; the nature of evil; the necessity of war, and whether religion is part of the problem or the solution.

Description

Details

As hostilities in Iraq continued to dominate international radio and television, Andrew White's was the voice of authority, always realistic but never without hope. But where is hope now? What is the future for Iraq? This is the fascinating, first-hand account of one man's deepening involvement over six years with a war-torn nation which has yet to find its place in a new order. As an envoy for peace in an increasingly complex situation, Andrew has dedicated himself to religious and political reconciliation in Iraq, risking his life on more than one occasion. He is remarkable for his capacity to relate to people at both a high and a more ordinary level and his picture of life on the ground in Iraq is as compelling as his insights into what goes on behind the political censors. Interspersed in his account are reflections on some of the profound issues that confront him: the nature of evil, the necessity sometimes of war and, perhaps the most urgent question, whether religion is part of the problem or the solution.
