Getting in the Way: Stories from Christian Peacemaker Teams edited by Tricia Gates Brown
The stories recounted in this collection of first-person narratives were written by members of Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT). The fear, joy and challenge faced by these committed Christians is reported vividly from trouble spots like Haiti, Iraq and Colombia, where the CPT work to reduce violence and conflict. Whether relating an account of incarceration in an Israeli prison, the death of a CPT member in Iraq, or coming face-to-face with angry loggers in the forests of Canada, the narratives in Getting in the Way are intimate, moving, and deeply humanizing.
