This study explains the causes of conflict in this volatile region between Arab and Jew and Eastern and Western cultures.
Our free booklet deals not only with the past and present but with the future as prophesied by inspired writers more than 2000 years ago.
Present conflicts cannot be understood without putting them into their historical context and recognising the modern influences fanning those historical flames.
God can reveal the future. Nowhere is this more evident than in the remarkable prophecies of what would happen to Abraham's descendants through Jacob's offspring, the 12 tribes of Israel.
Daniel's book prophesied events fulfilled many centuries ago as well as major events yet to come. It reveals a history of the region, written in advance, from Daniel's time right up to the return of Jesus Christ.
