Daniel C. Peterson, Abraham Divided, Aspen Books, Middle East culture, ancient Jews, ancient Arabs


Aspen Books has brought back into print Daniel C. Peterson's 1992 work Abraham Divided: An LDS Perspective on the Middle East, in a revised second edition. In this book, Peterson examines the history of the peoples of the Middle East and illuminates their ancient conflicts and prophesied destinies. He reminds us that the blessings of the restored gospel are promised to people of both Jewish and Arab descent. And he tells the story of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the region.
