The monastery of Notre Dame de l'Atlas in Tibhirine, Algeria was known for nearly 60 years as a place of friendship between Muslims and Christians. Historian John W. Kiser synthesizes interviews with survivors, friends, and relatives, along with journal entries, to provide an intimate account of the 1996 kidnapping and execution by Islamic militants of seven French Trappist monks who lived at the monastery.
