In a remote valley north of Kabul, in August 2010, American peacemaker Dan Terry and nine other aid workers were attacked and killed in an event that made worldwide headlines. Why would one man take his family, follow faith and calling into the political and religious maelstrom of Afghanistan, and through years of war and strife believe he could make a difference?

In Making Friends among the Taliban, childhood friend Jonathan Larson retraces Dan's nearly 40 years in Afghanistan, and through interviews and eye-witness accounts, relays Dan's incredible way of daily living. Facing famine, poverty, prison, and rifle muzzles, and across three decades of kings, the Red Army, warlords, the Taliban, and the American-led coalition, Dan found improbable friendships across the front lines of conflict and inspired small Afghan communities to find a better way of life. This inspirational narrative of Dan's life and friendships offers a model for living authentically wherever we are.

    " A quick read with significant power that opened my eyes to things I'd never dreamed possible before. It jumped from event to event without ever seeming disjointed, making for an interesting narrative. "

    " Larson writes an extended tribute to his childhood friend and fellow peacemakerDan Terry who was killed in Afghanistan in 2010. Rich with personal anticdotes and a few B&W photos from co-workers and friends. Inspiring and challenging. "

    " Read through this entire book with a big smile or in tears. Beautiful and brief narrative of a man who was willing to go and do and give all for the sake of love. So encouraging to read of a man who acted as Jesus would... In the heart of Afghanistan. "
