Product Description

Hope for peace emerged with the Abraham Accords of 2020. Could the more than century old Arab–Israeli conflict be coming to an end? Yet, the anticipation of peace was shattered by the brutal attack by Hamas on Israel in October 2023 and the subsequent war between Israel and Hamas. To further complicate the story, Iran's nuclear threats against Israel, its financing and equipping of terrorist groups, including Hamas and Hezbollah, along with the Iranian missile attack, has made it clear that the conflict has broadened far beyond Arabs and Israelis to include the entire Middle East.

The conflict in the Middle East is often and correctly described as "complicated." There are many competing and passionate voices surrounding this topic. But an internet search isn't sufficient to help us accurately understand the ongoing crisis. Dr. Michael Rydelnik, Academic Dean and long-time professor of Jewish Studies and Bible at Moody Bible Institute, offers clarity by explaining the conflict in light of Scripture, including the biblical covenants and promises as well as biblical history and prophecy.

Israel and the Middle East Conflict is an up-to-date volume providing the biblical framework, historical context, and political analysis needed to comprehend the ongoing tension and the hope that only the Messiah Jesus can give this troubled region.

Read this essential resource for an accurate understanding of how to think and pray, speak and act, about the perpetual suffering and strife in the Middle East.
