Building a Just Peace in the Holy Land

Building a Just Peace in the Holy Land

Hope College and St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church

Elias Chacour, retired Archbishop of the Galilee and three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee, spoke to over 135 Hope College and Western Theological Seminary students and about 300 people at a community presentation. Archbishop Chacour self-identifies as a Palestinian Arab Christian Israeli. Chacour is the author of two best selling books, Blood Brothers and We Belong to the Land. Blood Brothers covers his childhood growing up in the town of Biram, his development into a young man, and his early years as a priest in Ibillin. This book has been translated into more than twenty languages.
His second book, We Belong to the Land, recounts his work in the development of Mar Elias Educational Institutions, from humble beginnings to major schools for educating Palestinian young people and for helping to bring about reconciliation in a land of strife. This book has been translated into 11 languages.
