Is it really possible to love one's enemies? This question sparked a fascinating and, at times, terrifying journey into the heart of the Middle East during the summer of 2008. It began in Egypt, passed beneath the high-rises of Saudi Arabia, then through the bullet-pocked alleyways of Beirut and dusty streets of Damascus, before ending at the cradle of the world's three major religions: Jerusalem. Join novelist Ted Dekker and Middle East expert Carl Medearis in every rocky cab ride, late-night border crossing, and back-room conversation as they sit down one-on-one with some of the most notorious leaders of the Arab world--real people with emotions, fears, and hopes of their own. Along the way, Dekker and Medearis discover surprising answers and even more surprising questions that they could not have anticipated--questions that lead straight to the heart of Middle Eastern conflict.--From publisher description.

From our 2015 #80DayRead Adult Summer Reading Club traveler Kate: A book that looks to see if "loving one's neighbour" is possible, especially in such a tumultuous land as the Middle east. A little heavy on introspection. The interviews with Hezbollah and other Islamic figureheads are wroth a read.

Ted Dekker and Carl Medearis travel to several Middle East Countries to sit down and have a conversation and tea with people or groups American's have labeled as enemies. For all the potential of this topic I found the transcript format of the discussions dry. The most interesting part of the book a substory of an American girl who goes to Beirut to find her biological father ends up to just be a parable created for the book. Very disappointing.

Interesting read, especially to hear from so many points of view. I would've enjoyed a few more "on-topic" questions and answers as opposed to some of the fluff, but overall a good read.
