Book Launching: “The Land of Christ: A Palestinian Cry” by Dr. Yohanna Katanacho


Dean of Academic Studies at Bethlehem Bible College, Dr. Yohanna Katanacho, has just published a new book entitled “The Land of Christ: A Palestinian Cry”, a book that addresses the harsh realities on the ground in twenty-first century Israel/Palestine.


It is the powerful Palestinian voice of a thoughtful writer who has himself lived much of the history of the Arab/ Israeli conflict, and who brings to his debate not only the erudite discussions and details of the academic mind, but also the passion of one who has suffered through these events and who perceives solutions from a Christian perspective.


The book sheds light on many questions and concerns on both sides of the Arab-Israeli conflict. The author, Dr. Kanatacho, is certainly not shy in giving us his testimony and deep conviction of faith in a Savior, Jesus Christ. It is not only a matter of faith, but how faith in the Redeemer can be applied in daily encounters with the community, the enemy, the oppressed and all religious people. For Dr. Kanatacho there is no separation between faith and everyday activities. It is very obvious that faith in a Redeemer leads a person to do "justice", love mercy and to walk humbly with God – Micah 6:8. As we look up to this Redeemer, we realize that He is righteous and a God of Justice (Isaiah 30:18). As a follower of God, Dr. Katanacho wants to see changes on the ground, changes toward fairness and justice for all.


Dr. Katanacho wrote this book because he is seeking positive results. Suffering will come to an end, tears will dry, and the land will be healed. Suffering is never an end, but Hope, Love and a new dawn are on the horizon. Dr. Katanacho bases his book on clear Biblical principles.


Other publications in English and Arabic by Dr. Katanacho include: The Seven “I AM” Sayings in the Gospel of John, A Commentary on Proverbs, and The King of Peace and His Young Followers.


The book is available in the Bethlehem Bible College Giftshop, and can be purchased/ ordered for shipment anywhere.
