Embracing the Divine
Passion and Politics in the Christian Middle East

Akram Fouad Khater

Cloth $39.95s    |    978-0-8156-3261-0    |    2011

"Khater’s book offers a fascinating account of the whole affair, drawing on the enormous reservoir of documents that has been preserved in Rome and Lebanon."—The Catholic Historical Review

"A brilliant book: erudite, engrossing, entertaining, and elegantly written."—Ellen Fleischmann, author of The Nation and Its "New" Women: The Palestinian Women’s Movement, 1920–1948

"Embracing the Divine provides a breath of fresh air in the field of Middle Eastern history. It opens a window onto the exciting world of religious belief and practice in the eighteenth century, turning our attention to Christian experiences in the Levant that challenge the notion of Christianity as Western."—Beth Baron, author of Egypt as a Woman: Nationalism, Gender, and Politics
