A Must Read

I really am afraid I can't do this book justice. How can I convince you how important this book is?
I think it's a must read for any thinking person. To understand the unconditional covenant God has with Israel, to understand the Arab-Israeli conflict from an historical and biblically (the same thing really) accurate vantage point, you really should read this book.
Sandra Teplinsky has done her research and she is an excellent communicator. This book is deep, but the vocabulary is understandable. If you are a homeschooler, I really suggest this as part of your curriculum. If not, may I suggest it as an important work? Intellectually and spiritually this book will give knowledge I believe we need to make rational and sound opinions on not simply noteworthy politics but to be well informed on God's very own heart for His people. All of His people.
In 14 chapters S. T. takes us on a journey from the beginning to present day to prophecy. She does it graciously and lovingly and fairly. A fascinating topic and a crucial tale worth examining- she does it justice. I hope you will take the time to inform yourself by reading this attention grabber.

From the Back Cover

Could you be asking all the wrong questions about Israel?
Conversation about the Arab-Israeli conflict usually starts by asking if God is for or against the Jewish state--or Palestinians, Arabs or Muslims. In this updated and urgent book, Sandra Teplinsky, an American-Israeli Jewish believer, shows why many Christians are asking the wrong questions about Israel. With gracious honesty and solid biblical insight, she unravels the mystery and controversy of Israel--and shows how it impacts you--by taking you into the Lord's passion for all humankind.

"With precision and passion, Sandra Teplinsky weaves a wealth of material and presents a compelling case why we still need to care about Israel. It's a powerful treatise and treasure."
--Chris Mitchell, Jerusalem bureau chief, CBN News; author, Dateline Jerusalem

"An essential handbook of immeasurable worth for every thoughtful believer. Its message could not be more needed than in this present hour of global conflict, both political and spiritual."--Pastor Jack Hayford, author, Secrets of Intercessory Prayer; president, The King's University

"The dividing line of the true Church will be its position on the Jews and Israel. You must be on God's side. Read this book!"--Sid Roth, TV host, It's Supernatural!
"A much-needed and fresh approach to the Arab-Israeli conflict. Readers will be left well informed and caring deeply about the Jewish people (and others) because they encountered the heart and voice of God."--Jonathan Bernis, president, Jewish Voice Ministries International; author, A Rabbi Looks at the Last Days

"Inspirationally written, biblically accurate, extensively researched and user friendly to the common believer, Bible student or seasoned minister--a desperately needed message!"
--James W. Goll, director, Encounters Network; author, The Coming Israel Awakening
