The Samaritan: A Biblical People

Good Samaritan laws protect do-gooders and Good Samaritan hospitals heal us. Samaritans appear in our holy texts— in the Bible, the Talmud, and the Quran.
The Samaritan people today number 850 souls, down from a million in the time of Jesus. They are split between Israelis and Palestinians. The Samaritans may soon go extinct, a tragedy that would end their 3500-year history— but not if the Samaritans can help it!

Five years of fieldwork have resulted in this intimate and compelling insider’s view of the Samaritan struggle against all odds, of their heart-wrenching choices, their joys and sorrows.
