Product Description

Michael Rydelnik, professor of Jewish studies at Moody Bible Institute, goes beyond the media images for an in depth, biblically grounded look at the "crisis that never ends"--the conflict between the Israelis and the Arabs. Dr. Rydelnik explores such questions as:

  • Will the violence ever stop?
  • Who really has a right to the land?
  • How did it all start...and where will it all end?

This revised and updated edition includes a new chapter that looks at the events that brought the end to the Terror War in 2004, discusses the change of leadership in the Israeli government, and examines the conflict within the Palestinian government following the surprise election victory of the terrorist group Hamas.

About the Author

Michael Rydelnik
DR. MICHAEL RYDELNIK is Vice President/Academic Dean and Professor of Jewish Studies and Bible at Moody Bible Institute. He is also the Host/Bible Teacher on Open Line with Dr. Michael Rydelnik, answering listener Bible questions on over 225 stations nationwide across Moody Radio. The son of Holocaust survivors, he was raised in an observant Jewish home in Brooklyn, New York. As a high school student, Michael became a follower of Jesus the Messiah and began teaching the Bible almost immediately. Besides his work on The Moody Bible Commentary and The Moody Handbook of Messianic Prophecy as coeditor and contributor, Michael is also the author of 50 Most Important Bible Questions, The Messianic Hope: Is the Hebrew Bible Really Messianic?, and Understanding the Arab-Israeli Conflict. Michael and his wife, Eva, live in Chicago, love hiking with their collie and boxer, and have two terrific adult sons, a delightful daughter-in-law, and the cutest grandchildren in the world.


A road map for peace in the Middle East? Maybe, but most people need a real map to help them find their way on the Arab-Israeli conflict. Questions like: Whose land? What is a settlement? Who is a terrorist? just aren't answered through the major media. This book will give you exactly what you need—the history, the facts and the biblical compass to help you find the truth about this ancient conflict, and why what happens there is of crucial importance to people everywhere!
-Janet Parshall, nationally syndicated talk show host

Like the noble sons of Issachar in the past, Michael Rydelnik understands, "the times, with knowledge of what Israel should do" (1 Chronicles 12:32). This is a must-read primer for anyone interested in making sense of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
-Charles H. Dyer, author, What's Next?, and Strike the Dragon

The differing opinions concerning the Arab-Israeli conflict are often filled with more heat than light. Read this book and you will understand history and the Bible better.
-Mark L. Bailey, president, Dallas Theological Seminary
