About the Book

Who really owns this much fought-over piece of land we call Israel/Palestine?  Should Christians support Israeli occupation?  Is there a solution which is fair and just to both parties?

This book takes the reader back to the life story of Abraham in search of the answer to these and many other questions.  John Hibbert has once again produced a very moving and powerful account of the experiences of a man who made many mistakes, but, by faith, became the father of Jews, Arabs and Christians.  With profound psychological and spiritual insights he uncovers the flawed human being whose relationship with God carried him through to the fulfilling of the Divine purpose.  The love triangle which Abraham formed with Sarah and Hagar provides for an emotional and dramatic love story.  From the ancient city of Ur, with its disgusting and licentious worship of Nannar, to the amazing world of ancient Egypt, to the birth of Ishmael, father of the Arabs and the sacrificing of Isaac on Mount Moriah, this book shows the origin of a conflict which has torn two peoples apart for millennia, but appeals to both sides to acknowledge the one all conquering truth, that "We are Brothers."

About the Author

John Hibbert is the son of a Yorkshire coal miner and since early childhood has had a passionate desire to serve God.  He is a husband, father, grandfather and company director, but above all, a preacher of the Gospel.  His world travels, together with his knowledge of the Scriptures, have inspired in him a godly compassion for his fellow men, together with an understanding of the views and feelings of others.  His love for Arab as well as Jew, enhanced by his visits to the region, are revealed in this controversial book.  This is his second semi-fictionalised work.  The first, "The Virgin & The Dragon", deals with the life of the Virgin Mary.
