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
