About the Author

Mark Braverman is an internationally known author and activist on the role of faith traditions in bringing healing and peace to the Israel/Palestine conflict. A Jewish American with deep family roots in the Holy Land, Braverman was transformed while traveling in Israel in 2006 by witnessing the occupation of Palestine and by encounters with peace activists and civil society leaders from the Muslim, Christian and Jewish communities. He now devotes himself full-time to writing, speaking and action related to a just peace in Israel/Palestine. Braverman is the author of Fatal Embrace: Christians, Jews, and the Search for Peace in the Holy Land. More of Mark's writings can be found at www.markbraverman.org.
