Praise for Seeds of Turmoil

“In Seeds of Turmoil my friend Bryant Wright takes a long look back to Abraham, carefully uncovering a decision Abraham made at a critical time in his life and how it formed the basis for today’s Middle East conflict.”

“As one who has sat under Bryant Wright’s preaching for several years, I have appreciated his desire to relate biblical teaching to our contemporary situation and its historical roots. Seeds of Turmoil follows that pattern, analyzing the current Arab-Israeli conflict against the backdrop of the history of the Middle East and its roots in the events of the Old Testament. Bryant helps us to see that, despite appearances, the world is not spinning crazily out of control but is slowly realizing God’s plan for the nations. It is a gripping saga which continues to unfold before our very eyes.”

“In these days of insecurity and crises that are often centered around the Middle East, Seeds of Turmoil helps us deal with the many quandaries and questions that arise as we sort through each day’s current events. Bryant’s clarity in teaching God’s Word, reflected through history and happenings of this present age, opens our eyes to Truth and gives deeper insight as to the biblical meaning and origin of the problems. In spite of wars and political conflicts that fill news headlines, his writings enlighten us to better understand God’s sovereign purposes and plans.”

“If there has ever appeared to be an insoluble situation from the human standpoint, it is the ongoing centuries-old crisis in the Middle East. As one late statesman poignantly observed, some players in this drama ‘never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.’ Unlike many of the people addressing the subject today, Bryant Wright brings a spotlight on the roots of the conflict and not simply the fruit of it. Since Scripture reveals that Jerusalem plays such a major role in the last days, every believer should have an interest and the knowledge of the Seeds of Turmoil. Read it and reap!”
