Publisher's Description

A clear, in-depth biblical explanation of the origin, history, and significance of the Middle East conflict.

The current conflict in the Middle East began long before the creation of the state of Israel in 1948. It originated when Abraham sinned, distorting God's promise that he and his heirs would make a great nation and inherit the land now called The Holy Land.

A historical and political account, Seeds of Turmoil clearly explains the biblical story of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar and the ensuing sibling rivalry between Jacob and Esau, whose choices formed the world's three most influential religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

This fascinating insight into the beginnings of the conflict also explains what about the land is so important today. In addition, Wright sheds light on the conflicting Jewish, Christian, and Islamic perspectives and answers the question, Does God play favorites?

    Seeds of Turmoil The Biblical Roots of the Inevitable Crisis in the Middle East

    by Bryant Wright

    In order to have a complete understanding of what mankind is like today, it is important to understand the history of mankind. The entire purpose of studying history is to understand where we each came from and to give us insight for today. Wright, the author of Seeds of Turmoil, looks back to the Old Testament days of history and draws lines directly to the conflicts going on today. He explains how the sin of Abraham and Sarah has formed a division between brothers and ultimately has formed the conflict in the Middle East. From conception, Jacob and Esau were in competition with one another. This competition has followed their bloodline into the conflict that is going on in the Holy Land.

    This book had a slow start, but eventually becomes interesting as more facts are laid out. I was able to reflect on how the past and the present are very much related to one another. By reading Seeds of Turmoil, I am able to understand how sin can destroy relationship and cause a lifeline of turmoil. This book was gripping in that it pulls you in to understand that conflict is deep rooted. Conflict may not be easily solved, as is the case in the Middle East.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in history and learning from the past. As a Christian, it is good for us to understand the division between Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. It is also important for us to understand how our actions today have real potential for changing tomorrow. I would recommend this book as a way to help people reflect on how our actions are vital for change.

    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson in exchange for an honest review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
