A Life Worth Living: The Story of a Palestinian Catholic
In his memoir, A Life Worth Living: The Story of a Palestinian Catholic, Bernard Sabella offers an enlightening, often humorous, personal narrative accompanied by reflections on lessons learned from his life in a conflict zone. This background has influenced Sabella’s current work as a committed educator, scholar, member of the Palestinian parliament, and director of a church aid agency—roles in which he has maintained a goal of promoting peace through understanding and absolute nonviolence.
Sabella expanded upon the stories in his book, sharing his life experiences and those of his paternal family as Palestinian Christians who became refugees as a result of the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. He highlighted the impact of higher studies in the United States on him and his immediate family, concluding with an audience Q&A.
