This book is ideal for a Christian in the West who desires to know more about the most infamous conflict in the Middle East, perhaps even the world. With the overwhelming amount of historical issues, religious implications, and contentious political views involved in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it’s common to be confused or to avoid involvement in the issue. There are so many questions people ask relating to the Bible and to what we see in the media. In this Skeptic’s Guide™, Dale Hanson Bourke does an excellent job explaining key terminology, historical events, locations, and important contemporary issues that affect the region. Dale offers a balanced perspective on a large variety of issues. She even gives a hopeful depiction of what remains to be done.
This book is great for answering questions like:
· What is meant by a two-state solution?
· Who are the Palestinian Christians?
· Do other countries help or hurt the peace process?
· How does the Arab spring affect the conflict?
