The Land of Many Names: Towards a Christian Understanding of the Middle East Conflict
Much heat has been generated by the subject of Israel and Palestine. It's a subject that will not go away and it is crucial that Christians should have a clear grasp of both the spiritual and historical issues involved. This is a lively, entertaining and provocative introduction to the subject for ordinary Christians. The author takes you on a historical journey of the Land of Many Names, from the Canaan of Abraham to the Promised Land, by way of the Land of Milk and Honey, Israel and Judah, Judea and Samaria, Palestine, The Holy Land, Zion, Israel and The Zionist Entity . At each stage, we pause to consider what God is saying to all concerned and, in some places, awkward questions are also asked of the reader. This is an easy read, but it is not a comfortable book.
