Bryant's New Book: Seeds of Turmoil The beginnings of the Middle East conflict

The current conflict in the Middle East began long before the creation of the state of Israel in 1948. This fascinating insight into the beginnings of the Middle East conflict also explains what it is about the land that is so important today. In addition, Bryant sheds light on the conflicting Jewish, Christian, and Islamic perspectives and answers the question, “Does God play favorites?” Seeds of Turmoil is available in bookstores nationwide, as well as on
amazon.com
and rightfromtheheart.org.

QUOTES FROM AMAZON.COM

"I absolutely loved it! This topic is so interesting and I have been drawn to different books in the last several years, hoping to find a somewhat clear interpretation of the origins of all that is the Middle East crisis. This book absolutely satisfied my craving for that knowledge. Wright gives a thorough Biblical background, adds in important historical facts to help the reader further understand the political importance and then ties all this together with modern day what-if examples. I found his writing style pleasant and entertaining, while at the same time, authoritative and informative."

"Finally, a simple book about a difficult situation. Seeds of Turmoil also gives great insight about the situation from a Jewish perspective, a Muslim perspective, and Christian perspective. Yes, the book offers its own opinion about the situation, but it does so in the hopes that the reader would make his or her own opinion first. This book is about offering clear insight into some messy and confusing questions concerning the Israeli and Palestinian crisis.”

An Increasingly Connected WorldHow is the ministry doing in these tough economic times?

Many of our supporters have asked me how the ministry is doing in these tough economic times. Well, we have obviously been affected negatively, from a strictly financial
standpoint. We’ve adapted to a reduction in donations that is approximately 28% lower than it was in our peak during 2007. However, at the same time, the faithfulness of God in providing our needs and showing us direction has been truly inspiring. While we’ve scaled back our television and radio spots broadcasting to some extent, we’ve also experienced tremendous growth in our internet ministries and have even been blessed to enter some broadcast markets with Spanish radio spots and devotions that we had not been in prior to this year. Our ability to reach people all over the world through web sites and devotions being produced in three different languages has grown from an average of about 6000 internet “touches” per month in October of 2006, to over 1,600,000 per month as of August 2010. This is an astounding number and represents a tremendous opportunity for the ministry to reach and minister to people that is also very cost-effective.

We are blessed and thankful to serve a God that continues to provide resources through our supporters, and who continues to light the way to avenues to share His Word with an increasingly “connected” world.

Two WolvesWhich Wolf Wins?

One evening, an old Cherokee Indian told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all:

One is Evil - It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The Other is God – It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf wins?”

The wise Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

When I first read this Cherokee saying, I immediately thought of Paul’s words in I Corinthians: 13-13: “Three things will last forever - faith, hope, and love - and the greatest of these is love.” (NLT) Wonder if the grandfather had ever heard this verse?

We are so grateful for our faithful supporters that enable the ministry to share message of Christ and the attributes of God described by the old Indian. I hope you join us with your gift as we “feed” people all around the world with the reality of God’s love and His greatest gift, His son, Jesus Christ.
