I read the book “Seeds of Turmoil” by Bryant Wright.
The theme of the novel is the roots of the Middle East crisis from a biblical point of view. It shows how it all started back in bible time. It started with Abraham and his two sons, Ishmael and Isaac. Abraham’s first wife Sarah due to being barren, told her husband to conceive through her hand maiden Hagar. This was the practical way it was done in these times so the family name would not die out.
Ishmael is the father of the Arabs and Isaac is the father of Israel. The conflict between the two boys started at a young age. At age 13 Ismael and his mother were sent away by Sarah and Abraham due to Sarah’s jealousy of the oldest son.
The conflicts started and snowballed to present time.
I received this book for free in exchange for 2 reviews.
