5.0 su 5 stelle This Author Loves Food Metaphors. 18 giugno 2014
Di James R. Holland - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
"Basil & Spice" was the name of a blog this same author ran for years. The blog's title caused most new viewers to think it was a food or cooking website. Not so. Ditto for this book of poetry that does indeed use food metaphors as well as actual foods to introduce the readers to the Christian Cultures that have existed in the Middle East for two thousand years.

So skillfully done is the writing, that many of the meals that are an important part of every family and extended family celebrations that the reader can almost taste the distinct flavors. Some times the descriptions of the meal preparation seem like they could be used as actual receipts for making the yummy taste bud pleasers.

Reading this book will probably make most readers long for the large extended families that exist in the Middle East. Many of the mothers included in this book had a dozen children. The culture is so different that it almost seems like is from an unreal world.

This book will open the eyes of the Western readers through it's descriptions of important milestones in family life that hasn't changed much since Jesus walked the same areas described in this tome. The events are timeless. Birth, Baptism, learning, courting, weddings with the new bride moving out of her childhood home to the house of her Mother-in-law, Diaspora, endless war, loss, death, funerals, hope, all these events are conveyed in the poetry of this volume. As the author writes, "Music, dance, and poetry are in a sense the soul of the people of the Middle East. Poetry is often read aloud and is cherished, as it speaks to the heart in its native tongue."

It's definitely worth the read. And the reader should take a look at the author's portrait on the book's last page. The image almost seems to levitate. That adds a certain amount of surrealism to the marvelous poems.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Delicious Taste of Middle East Christian Culture 7 giugno 2014
Di gayle h. swift - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
To Taste the Oil: The Flavor of Life in the Middle East by Kelly Jadon packs a huge reading experience into s short book of poetry. From the beautiful cover, to the lush language, the reading experience is sensual, atmospheric. Written from the author’s intimate personal experience with Middle East culture, the tone rings with authenticity, affection and understanding.
To Taste the Oil provides an insight into the often over-looked and little-understood Arab-Christian community. It opens the curtain on a culture through the lens of one family’s milestone events. This enables the reader to appreciate both the exotic and unique beauty while simultaneously seeing the common thread with our own family experiences and tradition. The reader sees we are not so different after all and understands that the differences add texture and value to our human experience.
To Taste the Oil, is a delicious taste of Middle East culture. Add it to your list of must read books.

5.0 su 5 stelle beautiful culture. The events are simple and universal 27 novembre 2014
Di Bibiana - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
What a lovely, evocative book! This book consists of prose written about living as an Arabic Christian in the Holy Land. When I read the poetry, I could literally see, hear, smell, taste, and touch the food, the surroundings, and the events. Reading this book is to be immersed in a little-known, beautiful culture. The events are simple and universal:a wedding, a baptism, children playing-but they are transformed into things of beauty. This book is both a learning experience and a journey.

5.0 su 5 stelle All eyes are focused on the Plight of Christians in the Middle East 30 ottobre 2014
Di nizar ghidon - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
A book that describes the intricate details of daily life in the middle east

In the form of poetry this book takes you through its chapters as if you're watching it being performed live on stage

If you`ve never been to Middle-East, You can get a taste of it in this book, laterally ( I tried some of the delicious Recipes).

With all eyes are focused on the Plight of Christians in the Middle East, It wouldn't surprise me if this book develops into a movie or a play

I have never been to the Holy Land, in yet I feel as I if I have been on a journey experiencing the very essence of this beautiful historical city.
From the moment you open the book you are brought into the language, the culture, the sounds, the beauty that is there.
Kelly's poetry teaches you the language, she writes with pure imagery... Amazing!!!
