Updated and Expanded Edition of a
Landmark Text on an Urgent Topic
Now updated and expanded, this landmark text reveals God's purposes for his covenant people in these timesand how this revelation is impacting the church. Unlike Ruth in the Old Testament, many of us have turned our backs on the Jewish people, the relatives of the Messiah, and we share the collective guilt for centuries of their persecution. These pages remind us that now, more than ever, we must confess, embrace, and intercede for the chosen people of God, aligning our prayers with God's plan.
Once again, Israel and her people are center stage at a crucial moment in world history, and this book shows why the church must effect reconciliation and why our prayers are vital in this hour. If we will make the same covenant pledge to Israel that Ruth made to Naomi, the church will never be the same!

This book opened my heart to the plight of the Jewish people throughout history. They have been unjustly critisized and condemned. Many christians have shut their minds to the Jews and yet we have the Bible because of them and the Savior Jesus Christ was and is a Jew.
After reading this book I gave it to a friend of mine who is the executive director of a major denomination in a southern state. He was so impressed with it that he is giving copies to every pastor in his demonination in the state he is over. Get it, you will like it.
Some books are more than timely. They are watersheds in their content and purpose. This articulate, instructive book draws from both the Scriptures and historical writings to give us a better understanding of Israel and her role in God's plan of Regathering and Restoration in these final moments of prophetic fulfillment. For a clear, Bible-based perspective on God's heart toward the Holy Land, this book is a mandatory must-read. The significance of the Apostles' final question to Jesus (Acts 1:6) also becomes apparent for our day.
This book is a eye opener to ALL the church body . If a pastor reads this and doesnt change his teaching about our Jewish roots and how important it is to worship as Yeshua(Jesus) did when he and the first church worship G-d his father and our creator and father then run away from them . The BIBLE is NOT the Jew book and the new book it is the Holy word of G-d ALL OF IT. Also look up the 613 laws that are in the bible most are on our law books today and the church says we are not under the law .These are the laws of G-d not the Jews only.
If only every Christian, every member of every Church, irrespective of denomination, would read the contents of this book. Read and then study the contents and the parallel Scriptures with an open and honest heart, then the world would see such a revival. Replacement theology would be a thing of the past. God's Promises and inheritance to the Jewish people would at last be understood and the Church would realise it's true relationship to Israel and the Jewish people upon which their faith is founded. Indeed, for all peoples of all religions, the contents of this book should be studied. Anti-Semitism is on the increase and we owe it to ourselves to know the truth about the Jewish people and the Land of Israel as it is actually outlined in the Scriptures. This book opens up these facts to us in an easy to read and clear manner that is so easy to understand. This book proves from Scripture how God sees the Jewish people and Israel. This book reveals to us all that we need to know. With this knowledge, our outlook will receive explosive implications in relation to our interpretation of current events, which will never be the same again. A must read !
This a basic, thought-provoking look at the role the Jewish nation plays in God's overall plan for the world. Finto challenges the reader from the beginning to read the book with a critical eye and look to the Bible to for proof, not his book. This is a wonderful book for anyone who is interested in Israel or wonders why the Church should take any interest in the affairs of that tiny country and its minority of people.
