Book Review: Seeds of Turmoil

The Seeds of Turmoil written by Bryant Wright “leads the readers on a journey beyond the headlines to uncover the biblical roots of the unrest in the modern-day promised land of Palestine.”

The book attempts to address the historic “why” of the conflicts of the Middle East by uncovering the biblical root of this in order to gain perspective. It is informative and fairly easy to read.

There are chapter study guides available in the book that could be used for small group discussions.

Dr. Wright brings sensitivity to the subject matter and highlights how the conflict is wrapped around the claims of the descendents of Abraham; Isaac and Ishmael. The main thrust of Seeds of Turmoil is that there were “Two sons. Two prophecies. Two nations. One ongoing battle for land.”

Dr. Wright also blends in Jewish, Christian and Muslim perspectives thereby bringing a comprehensive and balanced analysis of the conflict.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the Booksneeze books for blogger program. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
