Islam, Israel and the Church
by Marcel Rebiai
Rarely out of the spotlight of international news, the crises in the Near East often arouse violent emotions. How can opposing claims by Muslims, Jews and Christians to ‘the land’ be reconciled?
The author brilliantly explores the historical and theological background to this conflict. Making clear God’s love for Palestinians, Arabs, Jews and Christians, the author ministers to each group though the Community of Reconciliation, based in Jerusalem.
With compassion, commitment to peace and deep spiritual insight, the author provides keys to understanding God’s election in a format that is easy to read and understand. It brilliantly explores the historical and theological background to this conflict.
