From the Back Cover:

"A masterful piece of scholarship on a much neglected topic."

—Kenneth E. Bailey
Professor Emeritus of Middle Eastern New Testament Studies
Tantur Ecumenical Institute, Jerusalem

Western Christianity's longstanding support of Israel has certainly, but unintentionally, nurtured a bias against Arab people, traditionally tied to Abraham's first son, Ishmael. Lebanese Christian Tony Maalouf contends that this perspective differs dramatically from the biblical portrayal of Ishmael and the nations that have sprung from him.

By tracing the role of the Arab people throughout Scripture and prophetically into the final moments of history, Maalouf provides a much-needed understanding of a crucial contemporary issue and challenges Christians to think biblically about the complex issues of the Arab-Israeli conflict.

“A rare and extraordinarily helpful book. . . . One of the most thought-provoking, scholarly yet readable books I have seen.”

—Paige Patterson
Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

“An excellent study for any believer interested in the Middle East and the Arab world.”

—Patrick Cate
President of Christar

“Maalouf tackles the often contentious subject of Arab-Jewish relations with insight, kindness, and clarity.”

—Charles H. Dyer
Senior Vice President and Provost, Moody Bible Institute

A thoughtful and well-documented call to rethink the role of Arabs in the plan of God. Western Christianity s long-standing support of Israel has, perhaps unintentionally, nurtured a prejudice against Arab people--the descendants of Abraham s first son, Ishmael. Author Tony Maalouf contends that this bias differs dramatically from the biblical portrayal of Ishmael and the nations that have sprung from him. With meticulous research and theological astuteness, Maalouf surfaces the positive portrayal of the Arab people in ancient and prophetic history, clearly showing that the Israeli-Arab conflict is a recent development in history. By bringing to light the nature of relationships that have prevailed among the Jews and Arabs throughout history, Maalouf strives to change the thinking of Bible believers to a more accurate understanding of this crucial contemporary issue. He traces the Abrahamic heritage of the Arab people and majors on the positive Arab-Israeli relationships in biblical history. The descendants of Ishmael have an important role in the sovereign plan of God--right up to the final moments of history. Provides a challenge to Christianity s interpretation of current events Outlines a thoroughly biblical view of the Arab people Meticulously researched and accessibly written Author is a Christian Arab with substantial theological training.
