IN PRISM'S BOOK BAG: IRAQ – A JOURNEY OF HOPE AND PEACE by Peggy Gish (Herald Press)
Peggy Gish went to Iraq, with Christian Peacemaker Teams (www.cpt.org) as an attempt to prevent war. But on March 20, 2003, the bombs began falling on Baghdad. In her book, Gish recounts the moving experiences of CPT's work in Iraq before, during and after the recent war and occupation. Told as her personal account, Gish makes real the story of prisoner abuse, the character of the Iraqi people, and a passionate vision for peace.
From the fall of 2002 to the spring of 2004, she chronicles her Iraq experience. Here are stories of sleeping in a tent during bomb attacks, villages surrounded in razor wire, being deported out of Iraq, fighting for justice for Iraqi prisoners, being robbed, creating relationships with Iraqi citizens, and through it all – seeking the way of Christ's peace.
