Overview

The word Armageddon conjures up images of fear and ultimate cataclysm. The bloody 4,000-year history of the Valley of Armageddon, today known as the Jezreel Valley, reinforces those beliefs. There is, however, another much quieter reality very much alive in the valley. Despite the history, the prophecy, the current unrest and warfare - there are people from both sides of the conflict who understand that we are capable of respecting one another with dignity. Israeli doctors treat patients who are dedicated to their destruction. Palestinian Muslims help Jews. These people are living testimony to the spirit of forgiveness and to the power of acceptance. These voices may represent the real ultimate conflict of Armageddon - the battle between the forces of good and evil within ourselves.

The book was very interesting. Even though times are current as far as the story goes, there is a lot of historical information as well. The author brings out the constant struggle of people and there beliefs, trying to live as a society. It is an ongoing struggle that will never be completed. The book was written from a very different perspective than what you read about in the daily newspapers or on the media coverage. Good book Reader75ll

A man's story on living among Jews Arabs & Christians in the Valley of Meggedio & surrounding areas Wow, what a read, way cool but to get better perspective it would have made more sense to read it from last chapter to beginning; as a born-again follower of Christ i found this man's journey very close to the Father's heart. My heart went out to the peoples of that hot-zone.

A quick and easy read. Educational and eye opening. Sheds light on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with a fresh perspective. I highly recommend it.

Wish there was a Zero Star. Melodramatic, badly written Israeli propaganda with offensive colonialist Arab stereotypes
