Seeds of Turmoil Book Review

In the book, “Seeds of Turmoil”, Bryant Wright’s love of God’s Word produces a detailed, Biblical explanation of the origin, history, and future significance of the Middle East conflict and the current unending clash in the Middle East.  How it began long before the creation of the state of Israel in 1948, originating when Abraham and his wife, Sarah, doubted God’s promise and sinned.  In “Seeds of Turmoil” a historical and political account plainly explains the biblical story of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar and the ensuing sibling rivalry between Jacob and Esau.  Wright reveals the roots of the conflict and presents the opposing perspectives of the world’s three most influential faiths, all of which claim Abraham as their father:  Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. 
This intriguing insight into the initial stages of the conflict also explains why the land is so vital today. Wright peels back the layers, retelling the story of the patriarchs to find the source of much of Israel’s pain. In addition, he sheds light on the conflicting Jewish, Christian, and Islamic perspectives and answers the question, Does God play favorites?
For those that have a love of Biblical History and their Christian roots, this book is highly recommended.  God continues to pursue His chosen nation.
