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.

Over the top religious.

I bought this book looking for an interesting read on middle east culture. It is only a Christian walk down memory lane. Not what I wanted.

A goofy tour of the Middle East

Two Christian Arabists bumble thorough the Middle East, meet with terrorists and ask them what kind of toothpaste they use and what color their Mercedes are.

Another Winner

I enjoyed this Ted Dekker, Carl Medearis work so much. I have read and listened to many of Ted Dekker's works in the past and been pleased with the plots and storylines. This being a non-fiction work is just as intriguing as the tales that have been weaved and created. Tea With Hezbollah will keep you on the edge of your seat waiting for the next clandestine meeting.
