Editorial Reviews

Review


With its moderate tone and broad scope, this book is a valuable and accessible contribution to a contentious topic and should be of interest to Catholics and others concerned with religious attitudes toward the land of Israel.


The two authors write as scholars of the Bible unconcerned to frame arguments over modern Israel and Palestine but hoping that their factual presentation may contribute to the near silent dialogue on peace in the Land.


This book will help Catholics have a more informed understanding of the issues at stake in the struggle of Palestinian Arabs and Israeli Jews over the land that both consider their rightful home.

Format: Hardcover
A Catholic view of the Holy Land is presented in this scholarly study The Land, the Bible, and History, which comes from two biblical scholars and priests living in Jerusalem who analyze the Holy Land both as a concept and as a piece of political and social history. In blending a through analytical reading of the Christian Bible and referencing the Land promised by God and the evolution of local attitudes towards it, THE LAND, THE BIBLE, AND HISTORY provides some important points on Catholic thinking both past and present, making for a fine pick for any spirituality holding, especially those strong in Catholic sentiments.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book deals with the importance of the Holy Land to different religious and political groups from a Christian perspective (Catholic). It deals with the topics in a very thought-provoking way, juxtaposing the Kingship of God vs. the man-kings that the ancient Jews desired and the importance of the ancient temple(s).

A good read.
