Israel God’s Servant: God’s Key to the Redemption of the World
Handsel, Paternoster 2007
Historically, anti-Semitism has been engrained in much Christian theology and practice. Is this the result of New Testament 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 Israel, 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.
