The Continuing Crisis over Israel and Palestine. A new and fully updated edition includes the history of the area since 9/11, the impact of the Gulf wars, the building of the security wall, and the increased importance of Hamas.
The conflict between Israel and the Palestinians has profoundly affected the Middle East for almost 70 years, and shows no sign of ending. It remains a huge political and humanitarian problem. Writing from the perspective of someone who has lived and worked in the Middle East at various times since 1968, the author explains the roots of the problem and outlines the arguments of the main parties involved. He also explores legitimate and illegitimate ways of using the Bible in relation to the conflict.
Unravels the complex issues surrounding the continuing crisis. Fully revised and updated, includes new chapters on Zionism, Christian Zionism, and dispensationalim. Provides an evenhanded approach that does not assume a pro-Israel stance. Explains development of the conflict from ancient times; surveys Old Testament and Jesus' teaching on land; examines contemporary forces. Chapman is well-known Christian lecturer in Islamic Studies.
