The purpose of this book is to respond to the claim that the land of Palestine belongs to the Jewish people.
The strength of Khoury's book lies in asking the right questions and in analyzing the sociopolitical Palestinian struggles. However, Khoury fails to provide any convincing answers. In fact, his book is a monologue that does not seriously engage any arguments against his perception.

September 04, 20076159 readsIn this book, you will find that Arabs are described as donkeys. This description is embedded in an amazing dialogue in the middle of the nineteenth century between a Greek Orthodox Bishop and his Russian conversant. The discussion is so relevant for today’s tensions between the Greeks and the Arabs. Also, Kildani fails to be objective in evaluating the Catholic Church (Where the author served as Bishop), and describes Evangelicals as usurpers.

Light Force is a book that prompts its readers to be concerned about the souls of terrorists. It also wants its readers to be involved in the struggles of their brothers and sisters in the Lebanese and Palestinian churches.
Light Force is a fair book that is not marked by any mindless emotionalism. Instead, it reflects a strong commitment to Christ, to supporting God's people in Lebanon and the Palestinian territories, to loving both Arabs and Jews, and to evangelizing Muslims.

Several Christian Arab Scholars and Pastors in the Holy Land are leaving Premillennialism and turning to Amillennialism. However, few people possess the boldness of Rev. Yousif Odeh, a well know minister in Galilee area. After promoting the teaching of Premillennialism for decades, he comes to a point where he changes his position. Furthermore, he decides to publicly defend Amillennialism and to promote it in writing. In other words, his book is an apologetics of Amillennialism and a refutation of Premillennialism especially its Dispensational branch.
