Jabr Oslander, son of a Christian missionary family, grew up in the Kuwait Christian Medical Compound of the 1930’s. From early childhood, he was trained in the knowledge of Scripture and the Lord’s saving grace. But the vaccination of didn’t take. He rebelled. His Christian Arab grandmother pronounced him a “wild donkey”.
The discovery of oil in Kuwait in 1938 set him spinning out of control. He ran wild with financial exploits and efforts to dominate his situation. He became a “wild donkey” of a man.
Does God let him continue to destruction? Maybe there is no cure for his rantings. Is Jabr just too much trouble for God?
