Sometimes people ask me to suggest some books they might read about the Holy Land. Here are some of my suggested books along with a few comments.
Sermon: John Stott: The Place of Israel
John Stott (1921-2011) was an Anglican Priest and the rector of All Soul's Langham Place. His ministry spanned continents and he emerged as a leading voice of Anglican Evangelicals. His teaching was always gracious and clear. In this sermon he speaks to questions that arise in the minds of pilgrims to the ' Promise Land.' I do commend this as a worthwhile 15 minute read.
Kairos Palestine A moment of truth: A word of faith, hope, and love. 2009
The Kairos Palestine document is published by the Patriarchs and Heads of Churches in Jerusalem as an appeal to "hear the cry of hope that our children have launched in these difficult times that we still experience in this Holy Land." This is worth reading to understand the situation of the Christians of the Holy Land today..
