SEEDS OF TURMOIL by Bryant Wright

First, I would like to thank Book Sneeze for providing this book to me free of charge and for allowing me to give a truthful review.

If you want to better understand why there is always conflicts between Israelites and the Arabs, this is the book that will explain it in simple to understand language.  It goes all the way back to Genesis and God’s promise to Abraham that He would make them a great nation. But time continues to pass and no children, so Sarah devised a plan to “help out God”  She offered her handmaid, Hagar, to Abraham so he could have descendants.  That is where all the trouble began.  Hagar gave birth to Ishmael. God said Ishmael’s hand will be against everyone, and everyone’s hand will be against him; And he will live to the east of all his brothers.  Ishamael became the Arab nation.  On page 13, Bryant writes, “Had Abraham waited on God, trusted God, and obeyed the will of God, there would not have been and Ishmael or the deep-rooted turmoil we see in the Middle East today. It all goes back to a single decision by one man. It probably didn’t seem like a big deal at the time; Abraham was just following the accepted customs of the day.  But his decison to sleep with Hagar was, in fact, sin–not trusting God, and sin always has negative consequences.”

Consequenses that causes daily trials for God’s chosen people, the Israelites.

Bryant explains how the Islam faith came into being and the problems that everyone faces because of their hatred for anyone that does not worship their Allah.

Bryant covers a alot of history in this book but makes it very interesting. I would recommend it.
