Julia Fisher talks to Labib Madanat – For the past two weeks my guest has been an Arab Palestinian Christian called Labib Madanat. For many years he lived in Jerusalem and today his work takes him across the Middle East as well as Israel where, on behalf of the Bible Society, he oversees two teams – one team is comprised of Messianic Jewish believers; the other is comprised of Arab Palestinian Christians. Labib understands about reconciliation and how important it is to God. So in this interview he describes some of the projects and situations that have both encouraged and challenged him recently.
Our aim is to build bridges… To build bridges of understanding and support, in a spirit of reconciliation, between believers (both Jewish and Arab) in the Holy Land (Israel and the Palestinian Areas) and Christians worldwide.
