Pressestimmen

"Marc Ellis is a brilliant writer, a deeply thoughtful and courageous mind." Edward Said "[Ellis provides] a vital contribution to solving one of the few remaining intractable problems of our time." Archbishop Desmond Tutu "Marc Ellis stands in a deeply honoured and disturbing Jewish tradition of prophetic thought and action. This is a profoundly religious book and we ignore it at our peril." John Gladwin, Bishop of Guildford and Chair of Christian Aid "Marc Ellis has demonstrated great courage, integrity, and insight in the very important work he has been doing for years. It has been an inspiration for all of us." Noam Chomsky
