Doyle brings the amazing stories of the immense increase of believers in the region by focusing in on the personal testimonies of many who are now serving in ministry. The books main thrust highlights Muslim-background-believers, interspersing their stories with the history and tenets of Islam and comparing its beliefs with Christianity.A single chapter is devoted to exploring the change of heart experienced by Jews who are coming to recognize Jesus as their Messiah alongside a modern introduction to the faith and culture. An abbreviated history of the church in this region, and of historical interactions between Jews, Muslims, and Christians is also touched upon to ground readers contextually and dispel common misunderstandings.While unapologetic in his stance for Jesus and the truth, Doyles genuine love for the Muslim people is evident throughout his work. He writes with genuine appreciation of Middle Eastern hospitality, loyalty, passion, and dedication. He emphasizes that the vast majority of Muslims are peace-loving people who only want to raise their families in safety. They are good people who are often very open to discussing the claims of Christ.Written conversationally, Doyles work is both engrossing and emotionally moving. Its far too easy to fall into a mindset that revolves around fear, confusion, fatalism, and reliance upon military actions and diplomacy to achieve peace. Doyle quickly shifts the focus to Jesus, the only one who can bring lasting peace. This shift in focus quickly takes the real war out of the physical realm and into the spiritual. A rallying call to arms, Doyle also provides prayer points for the growing Middle Eastern church.God is certainly busy drawing His children to Him through visions, dreams, and the personal witness of faithful members of the body. Its high time we jump into the fray with the most effective weapon available to us as believers prayer.

Ive been reading lots of books about the middle east and by people who are from the part of the world, lately. Perhaps this is because of looming terrorist threats or the continued war in Iraq or because I am watching the birthplace of humanity for any signs that would indicate that Jesus second coming is right around the corner. Breakthrough: The Return of Hope to the Middle East by Tom Doyle is one such book that I am reading.Doyle shares the explosion of Christianity that is taking place in the middle east, and has been for over ten years! God is moving powerfully in that part of the world and within the Muslim faith in an effort to bring all men to Him. This is an inspiring read that tells how God loves all people and wants everyone to be with Him in paradise instead of the normal fare that usually comes out of this part of the world regarding war and terrorism.
