Israel Palestine: A Christian Response to the Conflict

Israel Palestine: A Christian Response to the Conflict

Craig Nielsen

$27.99

Paperback

Christian Zionism has gained enormous support in the U.S. and has been extremely influential in determining the foreign policy of the world's only super-power. But is this the only possible position for evangelical or conservative Christians to subscribe to regarding this 100 year long conflict? Israel-Palestine: A Christian Response to the Conflict examines the religious side of this issue from a new perspective. What is Zionism and what is its relationship to Judaism? Does God's promise to Abraham imply Zionism? Should Christians unconditionally support a Zionist state? Where do Palestinian Christians fit into this picture? These issues and an historical overview of the conflict, including helpful maps and reference data, are discussed in a passionate, easy to read and creative attempt to provide a Christian response to violence in the Middle East.

Clear introduction to a confusing topic
5 stars By Jesse Zaplatynskyj, Jun 19 2010
This is an excellent introduction to an often confusing topic for many Christians. Aimed at everyday Christians (and others!), this book provides a very clear outline of the historical conflict that has occurred between Palestinian's and the recent Zionist Israelis over the last 100 years with a fresh Christian perspective.

This book looks at the historical establishment of the Israeli 'Zionist' state. What is Zionism? Is it compatible with the Jewish faith - or the Christian faith? Or is it "the negation of Judaism" as one Israeli intellectual put it? (p. 22). And what about the Palestinians who lived in peace with Jews for centuries in this ancient land prior to Zionist occupation? Why the present conflict? Are they being treated fairly, and loved 'as our neighbor' by Israel and all in support? 

This book, based primarily on the OT and orthodox Rabbi teachings during the last century (arguably the most authoritative), shows clearly that there are conditions for entry into this 'promised land'. Is this current Israeli occupation the hand of God? Perhaps even a fulfillment of OT prophecy? This book provides clear outlines for re-thinking the matter. 

A hint to the conclusions drawn from this book is from the Bible itself: "The alien living with you must be treated as one of your native born. Love him as yourself for you were an alien in Egypt" (Lev 20:33-34)

Full of referenced information, this is an ideal starting place for investigating this conflict. A MUST READ!!
