(From the back cover)

One Nation Holds the Key to the Destiny of Mankind
Though it may seem distant from our modern lives, the drama playing out in the Middle East on the world stage has consequences beyond what we can imagine. And in the tumult of it all, one tiny nation will become the watershed of world events, affecting us all. 

In this accessible, behind-the-scenes guide, internationally renowned teacher and scholar Derek Prince goes beyond the headlines and immerses you in what the Bible has to say about Israel. Tracing her long, astonishing history, he offers insight into the mounting tension and exposes the destructive enemy now stalking this war-torn land.

Accessible and fascinating, The Key to the Middle East also reveals God's plans for all nations--and what our future could look like. Prince's depth of understanding and interpretation of Scripture will challenge and encourage you. But above all, you will be brought face-to-face with the God who remembers, honors and lovingly guards His promises to His people.

Here are my thoughts:

Broadcasts highlights the Middle East daily as you well know and as a nation Israel features prominently in these news. 
First in print under the title 'The Last Word On The Middle East' than as 'Promised Land' Derek Prince's The Key To The Middle East was written more than 30 years ago yet is even more relevant today than at its first edition! 
Why will you ask? Because it offers such a scopic view of the sequence of events which ultimately (at least in the opinion of those familiar with the area) will influence the outcome of the world we know.
Bible prophecies are at best a difficult subject as depending on whom we are we interpret these often with blinders on! Derek Prince however offers readers a rich insight on those documented Middle East's events linked to numerous prophecies of Israel's past, present and future. 
It is interesting to note that decades ago the author was keenly aware of both sides' point of views, Arab and Jewish and perceived how explosive the situation in the Middle East would become. 
If you acknowledge what has already passed you know those events soon to unfold bears once again the imprint of God's plans for his chosen people and the world in general.
Covering both the historical perspective and the prophetic fulfillment of Israel this book is easily understood, filled with substantial facts and related scriptures for those wishing to understand a little more more of the future, The Key To The Middle East is well worth 5 stars and a great addition to any personal library!

Meet The Author:

Derek Prince was born in India of British parents in Bangalore, India, in 1915, into a world and a way of life that no longer exists. Kings, queens and emperors ruled over vast domains, and the British Empire exceeded them all. 
The British army and civil service governed the colonies, and India was the brightest jewel in the imperial crown. 
Derek says, "I was born into a family of 'empire builders'. My father, Paul Ernest Prince, was an officer in the Queen's own Madras Sappers and Miners, his commission signed by Victoria's own hand. 
My mother, Gwendolen, also born in India, was the daughter of Major General Robert Edward Vaughan. Her brother, a Punjab Lancer, later became a brigadier."

He was educated at Eton College and Kings College, Cambridge.

At the time of Prince's death in September 2003 he was the author of over 50 books, 600 audio and 100 video teachings, many of which have been translated and published in more than 100 languages. 
Some of the subjects that are covered in his teachings are prayer and fasting, foundations of the Christian faith, spiritual warfare, God's love and marriage and family to name a few.
