The Inside Story of the Fight for Middle East Peace
Author: Dennis Ross
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Category: Political Science
"The definitive and gripping account of the sometimes exhilarating, often tortured twists and turns in the Middle East peace process, viewed from the front row by one of its major players."--Bill Clinton The Missing Peace, published to great acclaim last year, is the most candid inside account of the Middle East peace process ever written. Dennis Ross, the chief Middle East peace negotiator in the presidential administrations of George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton, is that rare figure who is respected by all parties: Democrats and Republicans, Palestinians and Israelis, presidents and people on the street in Jerusalem, Ramallah, and Washington, D.C. Ross recounts the peace process in detail from 1988 to the breakdown of talks in early 2001 that prompted the so-called second Intifada-and takes account of recent developments in a new afterword written for this edition. It's all here: Camp David, Oslo, Geneva, Egypt, and other summits; the assassination of Yitzak Rabin; the rise and fall of Benjamin Netanyahu; the very different characters and strategies of Rabin, Yasir Arafat, and Bill Clinton; and the first steps of the Palestinian Authority. For the first time, the backroom negotiations, the dramatic and often secretive nature of the process, and the reasons for its faltering are on display for all to see. The Missing Peace explains, as no other book has, why Middle East peace remains so elusive.
The Missing Peacetakes you to a journey to both the past and the future of the human race lives on earth going through the landmarks from the creating of Adam & Eve to the final day going through the main 3 stops on life on earth, Moses, Jesus & Mohamed.
The Missing Peace in New Testament Theology and Ethics
Author: Willard M. Swartley
Publisher: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing
One would think that peace, a term that occurs as many as one hundred times in the New Testament, would enjoy a prominent place in theology and ethics textbooks. Yet it is surprisingly absent. Willard Swartley's Covenant of Peace remedies this deficiency, restoring to New Testament theology and ethics the peace that many works have missed. In this comprehensive yet accessible book Swartley explicates virtually all of the New Testament, relating peace -- and the associated emphases of love for enemies and reconciliation -- to core theological themes such as salvation, christology, and the reign of God. No other work in English makes such a contribution. Swartley concludes by considering specific practices that lead to peacemaking and their place in our contemporary world. Retrieving a historically neglected element in the Christian message, Covenant of Peace confronts readers anew with the compelling New Testament witness to peace.

Through the loss of her husband to cancer, becoming a widowed mother, depression, a fatal car accident where she was pronounced dead, trauma, and more, she was riddled with emotional pain. While others tried to medicate, counsel, hide, ignore, or disguise her issues, the Lord gently peeled away the layers to expose and heal the root causes. Join the author while she shares her experiences and leads you to the Source of your missing peace.
