Israel God's Servant
This book is grounded in careful reflection on Scripture, deep theological sensitivity, an informed awareness of history and current affairs as well as a Christian love for Israel. Historically anti-Semitism has been ingrained in much Christian theology and practice. Is this the result of NT teaching or an alien intrusion into Christianity? What is a Christian attitude towards the Jewish people and towards the State of Israel? What is currently going on in the Middle East and does Israel still play a role in God s purposes for the redemption of the world? This book seeks to set out a biblical and theological case for the ongoing importance of the Jewish people in God s plans for creation and to explain something of the complex and controversial situation in the modern day Israeli state.
