"[B]y Larry Ekin".
Volume I: The Palestinians and the churches, by Michael Christopher King, published 1981.
Includes bibliographical endnotes.
"The involvement of the World Council of Churches in the Arab-Israeli conflict dates back to 1948, the year the Council was inaugurated at the Assembly in Amsterdam. That involvement has been both symbolic and practical: it represents the deep concern of churches all over the world for the resolution of the conflict, and it expresses itself in positive initiatives for reconciliation and a continued and considerable programme of humanitarian aid. The story of that involvement up to 1956 was told in an earlier book 'The Palestinians and the Churches', by Michael Christopher King, published 1981. 'Enduring Witness' updates that story, bringing it up to 1980. But it does much more, it surveys the churches' involvement and interprets its significance". -- Foreword, p. [ix].

This book "is an offering to churches and the world -- a significant and vital addition to the continuum of knowledge -- that will greatly assist churches to be effective and efficient in the struggle to overcome HIV/AIDS. It is a compilation of historical, scientific and statistical material aimed at providing churches and their partners with a better understanding of the dynamics of HIV/AIDS as well as current information to aid in collaborative efforts at answering the challenge of the disease. .... On a practical level this response is deliberately multi-faceted and interactive, encouraging churches and Christian service organizations to build and support coalitions dedicated to overcoming this epidemic". -- Preface.
