Seeds of Turmoil by Bryant Wright is a very interesting book for anyone interested in history, especially biblical history. I for one am not that person. The beginning of the book intrigued me, however, I couldn't bring myself to pick it up after the 2nd chapter to finish it. I am not a history buff, although some biblical history fascinates me.
This book simply went a bit over my head. Middle East conflicts have always confused me, and this book didn't clear things up much. It seems to move quickly, and assume that the reader is at the same level as the author. I appreciate the authors knowledge and insight, and I will be recommending this book to some friends whom I believe it will interest.
