Yet in The Dark Street Shining – by Dr Bishara Awad & Mercy Aiken


“A dramatic, dangerous, and deeply meaningful storyline that reads like a biographical thriller. Through  the real-life personal story of Bishara Awad and his family, you will gain insight into the Middle East, its history, and its people, and I think you will also gain insight into current realities that affect you right now, wherever you live.”

Brian D McLaren, author of Faith After Doubt

It is the heartbreaking and inspiring story of a boy who grew up to be a spiritual and community leader in Bethlehem. Bishara Awad was just a child when his father was killed during the Israeli-Arab war of 1948. After the family fled their Jerusalem home, Bishara and his siblings grew up as refugees. When Bishara learned how to forgive, he became a firebrand of faith and hope. Rising to the many challenges, he launched Bethlehem Bible College, the first Bible college in the West Bank. Through the despair and dashed hopes of repeated wars and opposition, Bishara’s story conveys how Palestinian Christians continue to live their faith and envision a better future, while wrestling with questions such as these:

Is peace possible in Palestine and Israel?

How do theologians in other parts of the world affect the lives of their fellow Christians in the Holy Land?

How does one stand for justice, while also preaching forgiveness?
