For he is our peace and has broken down the dividing wall


The Course uses a liberation theology approach to bible study, encouraging individual responses to the bible passages and inviting participants to reflect on what God might be saying to us in the context of our world today, and specifically the Palestine-Israel context. We have chosen for particular consideration the experience of life in the shadow of the hafrada ( separation ) wall, as it currently forms the backdrop in front of which all life, Palestinian and Israeli, is being played out.

This booklet has been designed for use in small discussion groups, although you may wish to use some of the material for personal reflection. The discussions are suggestive only, given to prompt and aid your conversations. Our desire is for you to engage personally with the word of God and the local context, and that the Spirit of God would guide and speak to you through these studies.
