The contributors are in three groups: "progressive American Jews who are struggling to rethink their own world view"; American Palestinians with a revised perspective, "ready to accommodate the existence of the state of Israel"; and American Christians who have been involved in the Jewish-Christian dialogue and "are concerned about justice for the Palestinians." All come out at about the same place: the need for an end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, for negotiation between the parties (including the Palestine Liberation Organization), and for a two-state solution. But the differences of approach and the discussions of religious and moral factors are of interest. Much sincerity here, although not a lot of political clout.
