Zigzag Journeys in the Camel Country: Arabia in Picture and Story

by ,

Fleming H. Revell 1911

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


“The camels are waiting and the caravan is ready to start.” A follow up to Topsy-Turvy Land: Arabia Pictured for Children, Zigzag Journeys in the Camel Country: Arabia in Picture and Story is a fun storybook that teaches children about the people and places of Arabia and the heroic missionaries that travel through there.

Nicknamed the “Apostle to Islam,” for nearly 40 years Samuel M. Zwemer lived and worked in the Middle East, preaching the Gospel of Jesus and training hundreds of missionaries. Founder and editor of The Moslem World, Zwemer—familiar with the land, language, and people of Islam—provided a window into a growing religion and culture that few Westerners knew. Zwemer’s legacy as one of the finest Christian scholars of Islam is still recognized today.

In the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in Arabia: The Cradle of Islam are tagged and appear on mouse-over. What’s more, Scripture references are linked to the wealth of language resources in your Logos library. If you own the English and Arabic Qur’an, you can follow along with Zwemer in his analysis of Islamic doctrine and his studies comparing Islam to Christianity. This makes these texts more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study.
