President Carter has been a student of the biblical Holy Land all his life. For the last three decades, as former president of the United States and as founder of The Carter Center, he has studied the complex and interrelated issues of the region’s conflicts and has been actively involved in reconciling them. He knows the leaders of all factions in the region who will need to play key roles, and he sees encouraging signs among them.

Carter describes the history of previous peace efforts and why they fell short. He argues persuasively that the road to a peace agreement is now open and that it has broad international and regional support. Most of all, since there will be no progress without courageous and sustained US leadership, he says the time for progress is now. President Barack Obama is committed to a personal effort to exert that leadership, starting early in his administration.

This is President Carter’s call for action, and he lays out a practical and doable path to peace.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Toni Chanakas | 9/26/2013

    " This is a difficult subject. I commend President Carter for writing this in such a way that is understandable in what is going on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Vicki | 6/13/2012

    " Superb book, with a well thought out and workable plan for peace in countries in the middle east, primarily Israel and Palestine. My new favorite charity is the Carter Center for Peace in Atlanta. They are doing astonishing work around the world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Mike | 6/27/2011

    " Easy read for a big-topic book. Not as strong willed or opinionated as previous book on the subject, for good or bad, not sure which way to go on that issue. His hopeful perspective is refreshing and one wonders if in the next few years we will see some of his suggestions acted upon. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Abby | 7/4/2009

    " 2.5 stars really. It was a fine survey of the conflict and its development over the years but I wanted more detail, more depth of analysis or personal experience. It also left me more frustrated than hopeful about the possibility of peace in the Holy Land. "
