Israel: the Mystery of Peace describes several stories of reconciliation between Jews, Arabs and Christians within Israel, the West Bank and Gaza that demonstrates how, through a common belief, in the purpose and power of the death and resurrection of Messiah Jesus, the ‘dividing wall of hostility’ that Paul mentions in his letter to Ephesians, is quite literally being ‘abolished’.
A Future For Israel? develops these stories of reconciliation further because something else is happening in the Middle East today that few would have thought possible a few years ago. These stories are about a number of Arab Christians; their numbers are not great but the influence these men are having is enough to show that potentially these people hold the key to peace in the Middle East. And their secret? Their understanding of God’s purposes for Israel. They are brave. It takes courage to stand by your beliefs when you’re accused of being a collaborator and threatened with your life.
