Reviews - What do our customers think?
The book misses his main point.  Feb 14, 2009
The objective of the research at this book is less discussed and less profound than it should be. The author of the book tells the wide context of 2000 years of history with elaborate detail of the non Arab Christian context. There are minute references to 700 years of Christianity that had preceded Islam. The author had not bother him self to research deeply about the Byzantine Persian warfare and its effects about the Arabs. There is no good research about The Christian kingdoms of the Ghassanids; The The Lakhmids and Kindah. The book deals mainly with Islam and Muslims more than any thing else. I don't see the point why a person who wants to read about the Christian Arabs should read in depth about the origins of Islam at Hejaz while not emphasizing the point that after the Islamic conquest of the east, the Christians had became a second ranked inhabitant at their own country. furthermore, there are chapters that deals with Christian Lebanese and Coptic Egyptians not as minorities who would wish to keep their unique identity and seek equality with majority but as a blurred individualistic persons with no deep and clear relation to their Christianity or even oppress their true identity. For those who would like to read a general history of the Middle East, they might find this book useful, but for those who wish to explore history of Christianity at the Middle East they would not find what they seek at this book.
