|The Return of Hope to the Middle East. When was the last time you felt a sense of hope in regard to the Middle East? When was the last time you even heard some good news about the Middle East?
Missionary Tom Doyle, who travels extensively throughout this key region of the world, finds much cause for hope. In fact, he observes that a spiritual breakthrough has come to the Middle East. A new generation of believers, passionate for God in spite of great challenges, including persecution, provides reason for genuine hope. Breakthrough! was written to tell their story.
Doyle reports that in recent years a good number of people in the Middle East-particularly Muslims, but also individuals from Jewish or traditional Christian backgrounds, have come to Christ. While surveying how the Christian faith is blossoming in the Middle East, the heart of this book is its personal stories. These stories will inform, inspire and challenge you to pray more effectively for the Muslim world in general and the Middle East in particular. (Tom Doyle pastored churches in Colorado, Texas, and New Mexico for a total of twenty years before becoming a missionary in the Middle East.)
