    A beautiful, thoughtful book, largely of photography with insightful captions and with short essays delineating its major sections. It is expensive enough that you might hesitate to purchase, but if you find it or are inclined to make a gift to your favorite library or your coffee table, I can certainly recommend this lovely book.

It is expensive enough that you might hesitate to purchase, but if you find it or are inclined to make a gift to your favorite library or your coffee table, I can certainly recommend this lovely book. I purchased my copy, now a couple of years ago, the evening I had a chance to hear Deborah speak. The daughter of a beloved pastor in my community (whom I never had the privilege of hearing preach [legendary], but whose writing I had encountered -- but that is another tale -- a short story that told me much about the soul of the community that fate eventually made my home), Deborah brings a deep, traditional yet lightly new age spiritual perspective to her photography and to the details she calls to the reader's attention in her captions and the essays that accompany the images. I finally had a chance a few days ago to spend several hours with it. I will be back, albeit perhaps in smaller intervals, to savor it again and again. A provocative counterpoint to the news and media images we sadly regularly see from this part of the world. Deborah and her (Muslim) husband lived on Straight Street in Damascus, the street where Paul was brought after blinded during his early days of persecution of the followers of Jesus. Thomas Pickering, Career Ambassador, in the Forward: "This striking book of photographs taken between 1991 and 2011 captures a Syria we will not see again. Or certainly, we will not see it for a long time. One can only imagine the devastating impact of a civil conflict which now has killed nearly 200,000 Syrians according to the best current estimates available (August-September 2014)...."
