About "Jihad: The Holy War"
Holy wars have produced some of the fiercest and bloodiest battles in history. For thousands of years, the countries in the Middle East have been at war with one another. Much of this fighting has been waged through terrorism. Why is terrorism effective and what does it attempt to accomplish? Why has this region been so strongly contested, and what will be the outcome? Jihad, The Holy War is a biblical look at the significant region and the implications for the entire world. Drawing on his vast knowledge of the Bible and first-hand experience of living in the Middle East, Dr. Lester Sumrall answers these pivotal questions.

Lester Sumrall (1913-1996), world-renowned pastor and evangelist, entered full-time service for God after experiencing what he recalls as the most dramatic and significant thing that ever happened to him. At the age of 17, as he lay on a deathbed suffering from tuberculosis, he received a vision: suspended in midair to the right of his bed was a casket; on his left was a large open Bible. He heard these words: "Lester, which of these will you choose tonight?" He made his decision: he would preach the Gospel as long as he lived. When he awoke the next morning, he was completely healed. Dr. Sumrall ministered in more than 110 countries, including Soviet Siberia, Russia, Tibet, and China. He established Feed the Hungry in 1987. In addition, he wrote over 130 books. His evangelistic association,LeSEA, headquartered in South Bend, Indiana, is still actively spreading God's Word. Dr. Sumrall's goal was to win 1,000,000 souls for the kingdom of God, and the ministry continues this vision. LeSEA ministry includes such outreaches as the World Harvest Bible College, radio and television stations, a teaching tape ministry, and numerous publications.- Publisher.
