Old Christian radicals

Art Gish also authored Hebron Journal: Stories of Nonviolent Peacemaking, The New Left and Christian Radicalism, and a number of other books on Christian community, Christian living, and anabaptist radicalism. He died in a farming accident several months after this documentary was made.

Peggy Gish has written on her time as a peace activist in Iraq in Iraq: A Journey of Hope and Peace. She was the first to report U.S. abuses of detainees in Abu Graib, and extensively documented the testimonies of Iraqis detained and abused by U.S. troops. Today she continues her work with the Christian Peacemaker Teams in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Gishes belonged to the Church of the Brethern.
