Publisher's Summary

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.

Love Your Enemies?

Ted Dekker and Carl Medearis have provided us with a very interesting series of stories, travel log, and comment on Christianity all rolled into one. They take a real life trip through the Middle East interviewing some of America's greatest enemies - asking "What do you think of Jesus' admonition - Love your neighbor as yourself?" among other things.

By the end of the book you will laugh, cry, and have your eyes opened. The writing is good and George Wilson reads (and provides dialects) in an interesting manner.

This is a good choice for anyone seeking a better understanding of our contemporary world.

Fantastic and Insightful

The rawness of the idea behind this book--asking controversial Muslim leaders what they think about Jesus' teaching of the Good Samaritan and loving our neighbors--is absolutely brilliant. Far better than academic dialog or second-hand speculation about the thinking of those in the Middle East, these men just ask simple questions and record answers verbatim. A well written, revealing project that promotes genuine understanding.
