Chosen? Reading the Bible amid the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
The situation in modern-day Israel raises questions for many Christians. In Chosen?, Walter Brueggemann explores these issues and provides candid commentary about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Are modern Israeli citizens the descendants of the Israelites in the Bible whom God called chosen? Was the promise of land to Moses permanent and irrevocable? What about others living in the promised land? How should we read the Bible in light of the modern situation? Who are the Zionists, and what do they say?
In four chapters, Brueggemann addresses the main questions people have with regards to what the Bible has to say about this ongoing debate. A question-and-answer section with Walter Brueggemann, a glossary of terms, a study guide, and guidelines for respectful dialogue are also included.
