Theology in the Service of Justice and Peace

Edited by Paul Alexander

What does the evangelical church in Palestine think about the land, the end times, the Holocaust, peace in the Middle East, loving enemies, Christian Zionism, the state of Israel, and the possibilities of a Palestinian state? For the first time ever, Palestinian evangelicals, along with evangelicals from the United States and Europe, have converged to explore these and other crucial topics. Although Jews, Muslims, and Christians from a variety of traditions have participated in discussions and work regarding Israel and Palestine, this book focuses on presenting theological, biblical, and political perspectives and arguments from Palestinian evangelicals who are praying, hoping, and working for a just peace for both Israelis and Palestinians.
