Review

I came across this book a short while ago and found it to be an enlightening read. It’s clear that the author has put some thought into his work and has obviously researched his topic and presents difficult information in a user-friendly way.  Though the premise of the book is quite serious, I would consider it an easy read.  What I like best about this book is that while most authors who write to alarm Christians of the decline of  America, this book is really a call to action, giving us steps to take to do our part to bring our Nation back to God.

    The Miracle of the Kurds
    By Stephen Mansfield

    Retail Price $22.99
    Amazon Price: $17.54

    Book Description: 

    Hundreds of thousands of Kurds were murdered under the tyrannical regime of Saddam Hussein. Some four thousand Kurdish villages were destroyed. Betrayed again and again by the nations of the world, the Kurds were as decimated as any people in history.

    Then came the Kurdish Miracle, that combination of ancient wisdom and modern economic genius that is now making the Kurdish homeland one of the most prosperous places on earth. Many experts predict that this homeland will soon be the world’s newest nation.

    Stephen Mansfield witnessed much of this history. In these pages he has turned the skills that have made him aNew York Times best-selling author upon the Kurdish story. He has captured the agony and the determination, the horror and the genius of one of the most remarkable stories of our time.

    Review

     

    This is an inspiring book that chronicles the struggles of the Kurdish people and displays their strength and determination to not only survive, but to thrive.  The author did a fantastic job bringing their story to print at a very important time in their history.  It is a great human interest story and you will find yourself pulling for this people as they struggle for independence and ward of ISIS attacks.
