Author: Dixon, Murray
Israel is the most misunderstood nation on the planet. The Jewish people are the most consistently persecuted in all of history â€“ ancient and modern â€“ why? Can the Church afford to pursue its historically notorious treatment of the Jew and the nation of Israel? This book offers clarity where confusion abounds. The author compels us to examine Church history and Jewish history in the light of God’s word. Jesus is Jewish and so are the roots of the Christian faith â€“ why is that significant? No nation, ever, has been regathered from worldwide dispersion to its ancient homeland, and speaking its ancient language â€“ except Israel. And that, only, after man’s most hideous crime, to attempt to exterminate them â€“ why? Is this an issue that Christians can ignore? This book offers answers to these and many more questions.
A powerful postscript alerts the reader to the real objectives of the 2006 war between Israel and Lebanon: a conspiracy seeking the total destruction of Israel with global ramifications.
