The wrenching situation in the Middle East, recent events have shown, is as complex as it is volatile. In this immensely learned and clarifying volume-here updated and issued in paper for the first time-the Ruethers trace the tortured and contested history of Israel/Palestine from biblical times through the Diaspora, the development of Zionism, the creation of the modern state of Israel, and the subsequent conflict with Arab and Palestinian nationalism. Magisterial in its grasp of the historical, political, economic, and religious roots of the conflict, The Wrath of Jonah also offers convincing analysis of the moral and political dilemmas facing Israelis and Palestinians today. Though they see possibilities for peace, the Ruethers are forthright about what they and others see as Israel's betrayal of its own original mandate. Their purpose, state the Ruethers, "continues to be to make a modest contribution to truthful historical accountability that must underlie the quest for justice, without which there can be no 'peace.'"

About the Author:

Herman J. Ruether is a political scientist and former acting director of the Palestinian Human Rights Campaign.

Rosemary Radford Ruether is Georgia Harkness Professor of Theology at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, Evanston, Illinois. Among her many influential books are Faith and Fratricide (1974), Women Healing Earth (1996), and Women and Redemption (Fortress Press, 1998).

From Publishers Weekly:

In this well-written, powerful sequel to Faith and Fratricide , the Ruethers (she is author of Women-Church ; he is acting director of the Palestinian Human Rights Campaign) argue that Israel and the U.S.not the Palestiniansare the chief obstacles to peace in the Middle East. The authors believe that the PLO's implicit recognition of Israel's right to exist "needs to be accepted and tested in good faith." Their philosophically grounded discourse traces elements of exclusivism and fanaticism in the three major monotheistic faithsJudaism, Christianity and Islam. Surveying Christian attitudes toward Judaism and Zionism from Jerry Falwell at one end of the spectrum to Arab Christians at the other, the Ruethers propose an ethic of solidarity between Jews, Christians and Muslims with the goal of a just peace, which in their scenario could mean either a separate Palestinian state or "one binational or cantonal state."
