Canadian Book Tour with the Rev. Dr. Naim Ateek

April 20 @ 15:00 - May 2 @ 22:00

A book and speaking tour with the founder of the Palestinian liberation theology movement, Rev. Dr. Naim Ateek! Co-founder of the Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Centre, Rev. Ateek is a 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. Join us for the launch of his latest book, A Palestinian Theology of Liberation: The Bible, Justice, and the Palestine–Israel Conflict.

Buy the book in advance for $25 (CAD): <https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/necef-sabeel-canada/events/ptl-book-tour/>. “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.” The book will be available for pick-up at your local book tour event.
