Couldn’t put it down!

Seeds of Turmoil: The Biblical Roots of the Inevitable Crisis in the Middle East,
Bryant Wright

From the opening sentence to the end of the book, my attention never waned. Though I believe myself to be well informed on the situation, biblically and historically, the narrative and development was such that I didn’t want to pass quickly over any part!

This is a terrific introduction to the issue and Bryant hits the nail on the head as to the source of the problem. Seeds Of Turmoil is a good introduction to Islam and to the relationships between the three religions of the book.

The unstated assumption behind the book suggests political Zionism is representative of biblical Israel.

I will happily pass this book on to others as an introduction to the problem along with a briefing on Political Zionism and Christian Zionism.

I received this book as part of Thomas Nelson’s blogger’s review program, gratis, and the freedom to post my opinion.

Portrait Of A Man

Patton: the Pursuit of Destiny by Agostino Von Hassell and Ed Breslin,

Have always been intrigued by Patton’s sense of destiny. Reading this volume enabled me to see the impact of his exposure to the scriptures wherein one encounters the message of a sovereign creator working all things after the counsel of His own will.

This bio also lends tremendous credence to the impact of parents and grandparents on the education of a child without the aid of government schools. The pressures Patton faced as it became apparent he wasn’t a product of the government system only attest to the effectiveness of educational warehousing in cloning.

The book does a great service in explaining the background and motivations behind the slapping incidents.

It is a shame the movie did not follow the biographical material outlined in this volume. Would have been a much better service to the memory of this man!

Patton and Smedley Butler are two terrific leadership role model.

I received this book free from the publisher through the Thomas Nelson bloggers book review program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
