Virtual Thurber Conversation - Dec 2020, Dr. Salim J. Munayer

Encountering the Christ-Child Through My Enemy's Eyes: Envisioning Reconciliation in Israel-Palestine
Tuesday 8 December at 19h30 via Zoom, Live From Bethlehem!


ACP is honored to welcome Dr. Munayer as he shares his story of working toward peace and reconciliation in Israel-Palestine. Dr. Munayer is Executive Director of Musalaha Ministry of Reconciliation, an organization he founded in 1990. For more than 25 years, Musalaha has been bringing Israelis and Palestinians together, facilitating reconciliation.

A Palestinian–Israeli born in Lod as one of six children, Salim received his B.A. from Tel Aviv University in History and Geography. After his B.A. graduation, Salim did graduate studies in New Testament studies at Pepperdine University. Salim then earned a M.A. at Fuller Theological Seminary and Ph.D. from the Oxford Centre for Mission Studies in the United Kingdom where his doctoral dissertation was entitled “The Ethnic Identity of Palestinian Arab Christian Adolescents in Israel.”

Salim has authored several books on Reconciliation, the Israeli–Palestinian Conflict, Christians in Israel, and Christians under the Palestinian Authority. Salim’s most recent work is Through My Enemy’s Eyes, Envisioning Reconciliation in Israel–Palestine, co–authored with Lisa Loden. Salim served as academic dean of the esteemed Bethlehem Bible College from 1989 to 2008, and he continues there as professor. Salim is married to Kay and has four sons, Jack, Daniel, John and Sam.

Join us on 8 December live from Bethlehem, as we engage with Dr. Munayer and the work he is doing through Musalaha Ministries.
