Book Review - Tea with Hezbollah

Tea with Hezbollah
By: Ted Dekker and Carl Medearis

I must say I was disappointed with this book.  I enjoyed reading Mr. Dekker's Circle series books, so I was eager to read this one. But this is not an easy read, like his other books. I had a hard time keeping focused and interested.

This book is a travelogue, much like a diary that chronicles the authors journey as they interview key leaders of the Muslim religion. They talked to our so called "enemies" to find out what they thought of Jesus' teachings through the parable of the Good Samaritan. They also asked them what their favorite jokes were, what made them laugh, and other "get-to-know-you questions.

Mr. Dekker told of the history of the areas they visited and talked about what his observed as well. The premise of this book sounded interesting at first, but I quickly lost interest as the book is truly like a diary. It gives so much detail that I simply could not make it through the entire book. I am one to finish what I start, but this book simply was not for me.

If you would like to read this book you may purchase it HERE.
