Towards a Christian understanding of the Middle East conflict
Much heat has been generated by the subject of Israel and Palestine. It’s a subject that will not go away and it is crucial that Christians should have a clear grasp of both the spiritual and historical issues involved.
This is a lively, entertaining and provocative introduction to the subject for ordinary Christians. The author takes you on a historical journey of the Land of Many Names, from the Canaan of Abraham to the Promised Land, by way of the Land of Milk and Honey, Israel and Judah, Judea and Samaria, Palestine, The Holy Land, Zion, Israel and ‘The Zionist Entity’. At each stage we pause to consider what God is saying to all concerned and, in some places, awkward questions are also asked of the reader.
This is an easy read but it is not a comfortable book.
‘God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth’ (John 4:24).
‘Steve Maltz has an evident gift for explaining complex historical issues in a simple and conversational manner, and he is to be commended for such an easily read and yet comprehensive overview of this vital period. Christians and non-Christians alike are urged to read and then rethink this whole matter.’–Derek White, founder of Christian Friends of Israel
‘I believe that this book is long overdue and will challenge all who read it to recognize that God is alive and active in Israel and with the Jewish people. Steve Maltz argues his case well. It’s guaranteed to provoke – it’s meant to!’ –Julia Fisher, writer and broadcaster
