Commenting on journalist Ben White's new book Israeli Apartheid: A Beginner's Guide, Simon Barrow, co-director of the religion and society think tank Ekklesia, said:

"Ben White has a passionate commitment to justice and to facing difficult facts. This book is likely to produce strong reactions, but it will also hopefully provoke real thought.”

White is a Christian journalist who has written widely on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. His work is published by Ekklesia alongside other outlets.

Ekklesia advocates a just-peace policy for both Israelis and Palestinians and also promotes nonviolent methods for tackling conflict and injustice.
