Islam Israel And The Church
This interesting book clearly sets out the differences between Islam, Judaism and Christianity. The author looks at all three religions from an historical and theological background.
The chapter on the origins and beliefs of Islam is most helpful and gives a clear understanding of what the Moslem religion is all about. By the same token Israel’s election by God is also biblically set forth along with God’s continued plan for them as a nation. Replacement theology is refuted as the author draws a distinction between God’s plan for Israel and tor the Church.
The Israeli /Palestinian conflict is set in context. God’s love for Arabs as well as Jews is upheld with the religion of Islam set forth as the obstacle to blessing. The Church’s responsibility to win both Jews and Moslems to Christ is presented as a clear challenge, as is the need for the Church to stand alongside and in support of Israel in a world at enmity with God.
A provocative and interesting book written by one of Algerian descent.
