“Peacemakers: Crossing the Divide is a superbly written and excellently produced documentary that gives a powerful message that deeply inspires its viewers that authentic, biblical reconciliation is possible – even between people who have centuries of distrust. Peacemakers shows the unique power of the gospel to transcend culture and ethnicity and bring people together, through the hard work of a small group of pioneers who are committed to biblical unity.  Bob and Kathryn are not theorists about reconciliation but practitioners. They have lived lives of promoting peace and now have produced a film that will inspire countless to do the same.”

“Peacemakers is more than a film about conflict between Jews and Palestinians–it is a story that profiles the power of Christ to nullify generational, religious, and political ideologies that perpetuate hatred and division, to create a pathway for hearts to be reconciled and restored. It is, indeed, a magnificent story of redemption. The film shows the extraordinary steps taken by individuals to experience authentic reconciliation. Get ready for your own epiphany as areas of your heart become open to reconciling with those who are different and who you once opposed. The walls that divide are torn down through a full embrace of the Cross of Christ. Bob and Kathryn have chronicled well the hostility between Jews and Arabs and the unique ways that God transforms hearts, which leads to a willingness to “cross the divide”.”
