Whose Land? Whose Promise?: What Christians Are Not Being Told About Israel and the Palestinians
Publisher Paternoster Press
This book is a powerful, prophetic call for justice that all Christians with an interest in the Middle East ought to ponder carefully Whose Land? Whose Promise? Is a passionate and personal set of reflections about the crisis in the Middle East, born out of personal experience, and historical and theological study. Untold and heartbreaking stories from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict are combined with the insights of a biblical scholar with a passion for justice. Burge wrestles with questions such as: How do I embrace my commitment to Judaism, a commitment to which I am bound by the Bible, when I sense in my deepest being that there is a profound injustice about Israel? How do I celebrate the birth of this nation Israel when I also mourn the suffering of Arab Christians who are equally my brothers and sisters in Christ? How do I love those Palestinian Muslims who are deeply misunderstood by all parties in this conflict?
