Book Summary of Israel, the Church, and the Middle East by Darrell L. Bock and Mitch Glaser, Editors


This volume of essays was compiled in celebration of Israel’s 70th anniversary as a nation. The church and Israel have had a unique history due to the vast range of theological and geopolitical challenges that have faced Israel throughout the years.

With the scarcity of academic resources discussing the continuation of God’s plan for Israel, this volume seeks to challenge rampant supersessionism by presenting biblical foundations for the pro-Israel stance, theological interpretations of Scripture and how culture can inflluence our views on Israel, practical guidance on how our view of Israel impacts how we live, and some of the current challenges to peace in Israel.

God’s people need unity. Jews in Israel need unity with Arabs. Christian Zionists and other pro-Israel groups need unity with supersessionists. Missionaries to Jews and Muslims need unity as well. People on both sides of these issues must work together to see God’s glory spread throughout the earth.
