Is it really possible to love one’s enemies?

That’s the question that sparked a fascinating and, at times, terrifying journey into the heart of the Middle East during the summer of 2008. It was a trip that began in Egypt, passed beneath the steel-and-glass high-rises of Saudi Arabia, then wound through the bullet-pocked alleyways of Beirut and dusty streets of Damascus, before ending at the cradle of the world’s three major religions: Jerusalem.

Tea with Hezbollah combines nail-biting narrative with the texture of rich historical background as listeners join novelist Ted Dekker and his coauthor, Middle East expert Carl Medearis, on a hair-raising journey. They are with them in every rocky cab ride, late-night border crossing, and back-room conversation as they sit down one-on-one with some of the most notorious leaders of the Arab world. These candid discussions with leaders of Hezbollah and Hamas; with muftis, sheikhs, and ayatollahs; and with Osama bin Laden’s brothers reveal these men to be real people with emotions, fears, and hopes of their own. Along the way, Dekker and Medearis discover surprising answers and even more surprising questions that they could not have anticipated—questions that lead straight to the heart of Middle Eastern conflict.

    " Although I don't think the writing style is as fluid as a typical Ted Dekker book, I have to say that this book really made me THINK. And I continue to think about the challenges he sets forth in this book. Regardless of your political views you will find this book to challenge your assumptions about what transpires in the Middle East while revealing prejudices you likely did not realize that you hold. "

    " A very interesting and enjoyable read, Tea with Hezbollah contains a view of the Middle East that is very rarely reported in the news, if at all. The authors are even handed, honest, clear, and concise with their descriptions. They strike at the heart of those they interview, and you come away wanting more. There are no politics, no proselytizing, and certainly no boring pages. There is a great deal of insight about the different fixtures of Middle Eastern Islam that is relatively unknown in the West. The prime objective was to meet with the United States' enemies, both real and perceived, and ask them one simple question: What do they think about Jesus' revolutionary teaching to love one's enemies. This culture-rich trip journal finishes with a visit to some of the last remaining Samaritans in the world, the very people who Jesus used to illustrate his principle of love. I highly recommend Tea with Hezbollah to anyone who is interested in current events, foreign policy, or comparative religion between Jews, Christians, and Muslims. "
