Patricia Rantisi

Patricia Rantisi was born and educated in England but has spent the best part of her life abroad. She lived in Lamas, Peru, South America from 1958 to 1965 working in a small hospital, until her marriage. Then she lived in Ramallah, occupied Palestinian Territory from 1965 to 2002. She has authored the Revised Version of her late husband’s autobiography (Rev. Audeh Rantisi) named ‘Blessed are the Peacemakers’, which was published by Eagle Press in 2003. Patricia has published many articles about the Palestinian/Israeli conflict and in 2005 she won the Better Book Company Synopsis Competition for her first novel ‘Miriam’s Legacy’. This was published by AuthorHouse in July 2007 and has been widely distributed, both in the UK and America. She has written a second novel, ‘My name is Musa’, which was published by FeedARead in March 2012.

Rt. Rev. Robert  McKewin

Prejudice stemming from cruel history over centuries makes us fail to remember that God is the parent of us all. In reading My Name is Musa I relearned a lesson. By whatever Name we call the Creator, that Creator has commended us all to Love one another.

Patricia had recently had a meditation published in ‘The Upper Room’, a collection of daily Bible reading notes. Read it here.
