Ben White's book, Israeli Apartheid: A Beginner's Guide is described by Nobel Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu as "A very strong and clear voice that does not shun from exposing in full, and in a most accessible manner, the essence of Zionism and Israeli policies in Palestine." White has extensive exposure to Israel-Palestine dating back to his university days at Cambridge. He was struck by how what he saw bore little resemblance to Western media coverage. Since then, he has used his writing and speaking to try and communicate the past and present reality in Israel-Palestine. Ben has contributed to the Guardian, New Statesman, Christian Science Monitor, Palestine Chronicle, Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, Middle East International, Church of England Newspaper, and Palestine-Israel Journal. He has talked on the issue to King's College, Cambridge; Churchill College, Cambridge; Nottingham University; St John's Theological College; and frequently speaks at churches and community centers in the UK and USA.

The author of Fatal Embrace: Christians, Jews and the Search for Peace in the Holy Land, a brilliant and thought-provoking book on the religious dimensions of Israel-Palestine, Mark Braverman, the Grandson of a fifth generation Palestinian Jewish family, was raised in the United States and reared in the Jewish tradition. Braverman was trained as a Clinical Psychologist and himself underwent a psychological transformation as a result of a 2006 visit to the Holy Land. Since his return, he has devoted himself full time to writing and speaking about the Israel-Palestine conflict.
