Rev. Dr. Naim Ateek is Co-founder of the Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Centre in Jerusalem and the former Canon of St. George’s Cathedral in Jerusalem. For three decades he has inspired readers with his ideas about justice and reconciliation in the Holy Land.
He will be coming to Canada in April as a guest of Canadian Friends of Sabeel (CFOS) to promote his thoughtful new book A Palestinian Theology of Liberation: The Bible, Justice, and the Palestine–Israel Conflict, on the Israel/Palestine issue and how to solve it.
“In this book,” remarks Nancy Cardoso, of the World Council of Churches’ Palestine and Israel Ecumenical Forum, “we hear the scream and the whisper of the poor, the sounds of death in the Occupied Territories, but also the whisper of life, resisting and offering hope for all of us.”
In his foreward , Walter Brueggemann, widely considered one of the most influential Old Testament scholars of the last several decades, says of Ateek’s book “Naim Ateek offers a succinct primer on liberation theology in the context of the Palestinian struggle for freedom and self-determination.”
