118 Days: Christian Peacemaker Teams Held Hostage in Iraq

Cover of 118 Days: Christian Peacemaker Teams Held Hostage in IraqOn November 26, 2005, Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) members Tom Fox and Jim Loney along with delegation members Norman Kember and Harmeet Sooden were kidnapped in Iraq. Tom Fox was killed on March 9, 2006. Jim, Norman and Harmeet were freed two weeks later on March 23 after 118 days of captivity.

The kidnapping of these four peacemakers was like a rock thrown into a pond.

This collection describes the ripples on the water, the impact and results of that rock, in stories characterized by hope, courage, friendship, and forgiveness. 118 Days bears witness to vital peacemaking being done around the world in these times.

Tricia Gates Brown is the editor of pieces from 23 contributors to this volume.

"Christ never promised it would be easy. That is, Christ did not say the work of peace would be without conflict. So we are fortunate to have this wonderful book and testimony to the pain, loss and elation it takes to do the work of peace. These honest and sobering reflections help all of us committed to the work of peace better understand the world in which we live. I hope this book will be widely read."
