Searching for Hope. 'Six years ago Tariq Aziz, then deputy PM of Iraq, invited me to visit the country to see the effect of sanctions. Having started to engage with the religious leaders of Iraq, I became the point of contact between the Coalition Provisional Authority and these leaders after the war. We then started the Centre for Dialogue Reconciliation and Peace, which is the foremost organisation in Iraq for engagement with religious and tribal leaders and the new Government. We work under the patronage of the Prime Minister, and we also have a strategic role in hostage negotiations. 'It is a roller coaster existence in the new Iraq. Ecstasy and despair are part of life. There again, is not salvation history a narrative of ecstasy and despair? Behind the scenes there are real people working day and night to try and ensure that this experiment of rebuilding a rogue nation works. For the people of Iraq, who knows how long it will really be before they see a difference?' (publisher)

The war in Iraq is one of the most controversial subjects on the planet today. Most of us think about it or write about it with at best indirect information. However, my friend Canon Andrew White has been engaged in Iraq for many years and has the most extensive network of key contacts across all the communities there of anyone I know. As a committed Christian, highly skilled in reconciliation and peacemaking, Andrew's thoughts on Iraq are certainly worth consideration. Andrew has first hand information of the deep divisions within Iraq and the difficulty of getting Sunnis, Shia, Kurds, and all the mini factions within each of those groups to work together. He also knows the depth of tyranny exercised by Saddam Hussein and has reached some conclusions about the justification for war. Amongst the millions of works written about Iraq and its suffering in recent decades, this is one book more than worth reading.
