    One thought on “Israel Matters: Why Christians Must Think Differently about the People and the Land”

    1. Compelling arguments in an easy to digest fashionThis book distills the main arguments from the scholarly work The New Christian Zionism into an accessible form for popular audiences Dr McDermott puts forward a crushing tour de force case against supersessionism and for Israel s legal, theological, and national right to exist He also explores the deep theological meaning of the Jewish people s continuation as God s chosen people I recommend this to anyone who is interested in this topic.

    2. The author lays out the case why Christians must think differently about the people and the land He then ends up giving us some little known facts about the Palestinian Israeli issue He reminds us that we should do plenty of homework before declaring what ought to be done.

    3. A really good book I didn t agree with everything the author posited, but he does force the reader to rethink very important aspects of Israel and how the church relates.
