In Jesus and the Land: The New Testament Challenge to "Holy Land" Theology, New Testament scholar Gary Burge describes first-century Jewish and Christian beliefs about the land of Israel in order to help contemporary Christians develop a Christian theology of Israel and assess "Bible-based" claims in discussions of the Israeli-Palestinian struggle.
Burge provides a full survey of New Testament passages that directly address the question of land and faith and offers an honest and compelling presentation of present-day tensions surrounding "territorial religion" in the modern Middle East. This accessibly written volume will appeal to undergraduate and seminary students, pastors, teachers, and anyone interested in the Israeli-Palestinian situation.
