No way to tip toe around the daily media coverage. Amidst the turmoil Ann Madsen has not only visited the golden city more than thirty times. She writes with the sensitivities of a native. The answer was in her eyes. She was herself a neutral zone, a walking peacemaker. That encounter led Ann to others. They range from a Greek Orthodox nun to a Palestinian grandmother, to a Jewish law professor, to the wife of a prominent orthodox rabbi, to a Christian-Arab.
Making Their Own Peace: Twelve Women of Jerusalem
Each one has a unique and breathtaking story. But amidst the tensions and wounds they have, by active serving, refused to become trapped or helpless or hopeless.
This book is the product of candid conversations and tapings. Ann weaves them together in historical context. The result is a set of autobiographical tracings and descriptions of how each has achieved meaning and purpose, and above all a measure of inner and outer peace in their daily lives. Several of these women did not know each other? Two of them lived in the same block. But fearing recriminations from all sides of the conflict, they had rarely, if ever, spoken to each other. These women have not succumbed to the view that their troubles all arise from some external force or to the daily temptation to demonize those locked in the other sides of the conflict.
One of the highlights is the introduction of the book. It is a verbal oil and brush portrait of present- day Jerusalem. Ann writes in concrete, pictorial, vivid style of the city that continues to multiply and yet tragically divide. The prose style is gripping and the content is fresh and revealing. It is significant that former Jerusalem Mayor Teddy Kollek endorses this book. It embraces his determined legacy that Jerusalem must become a universal city, a place for all, including all who seek contact with places made holy over thousands of years.
