The Gospel and the Land of Promise: Christian Approaches to the Land of the Bible
Church, Philip, Peter Walker, Tim Bulkeley and Tim Meadowcroft, editors

Eugene, OR: Pickwick, 2011 pp. xiv + 188. $22.00


Description: Today the "land of promise" is a spark in the tinder dry atmosphere of Middle Eastern affairs. Events there continue to wield influence among peoples and in places well beyond the region itself. This raises for Christians the acute theological problem of how to relate to the "land of promise" today and in light of the land of the Bible. Our hope is that this volume of essays will contribute to a more informed and theologically coherent response to the "Land of Promise." It is offered here in the name of peace for all peoples in that place and among those who continue to look to her as a place of promise.

Subjects: Methods, Theological Approaches, Biblical Theology
