This updated four-session adult study will help Christians better understand the complex history of the Middle East. With a brand-new fourth session that tracks recent developments in the area up to 2014, the study provides information about the culture of the Middle East dating back to biblical times.

Each session includes a Participant Handout and a Leader's Guide featuring:

  • Icebreaker, map, and group activities
  • Prayers
  • Discus sion questions
  • Glossary of key terms

Also included are teaching alternatives such as trying Middle Eastern food, meeting with refugees in your area that are from the Middle East, and more.

There are also many books available through the Thoughtful Christian that can serve as additional resources and help readers explore the complex situation in the Middle East, including The Search for Truth about Islam, Faith Beyond Despair: Building Hope in the Holy Land, and In the Footprints of Francis and the Sultan. Middle Eastern politics and religion are complicated, and these resources will help bring deeper understanding to this area of our world.
