Format: Kindle Edition
First, it is good to see this classic (written in approximately 1923) in a Kindle edition, since print copies are not readily available any longer. (I purchased mine nearly 35 years ago.)

Written in a clear yet scholarly fashion, "The Hope of Israel" is a devastating analysis and critique of the view common in premillennialist and particularly in dispensationalist circles that the promises of Scripture are not completely fulfilled in Christ and His church and that many of them remain to be fulfilled by physical Israel in the future. Philip Mauro accomplishes this feat by examining in detail the relevant passages from both the Old and the New Testament. The two chapters in which he discusses the prophecies of Ezekiel (Chapters XI and XII) provide perhaps the best analysis of these prophecies and how they have been fulfilled that I have come across anywhere. Another strong chapter is "How the O.T. Prophecies concerning Israel were Interpreted by Paul" (Chapter 3).

His chapter "Shall Israel Be Restored as a Nation?" provides a creditable argument against a restored physical nation of Israel being in any way a fulfillment of the promises to Israel (which Mauro believes have been fulfilled by Christ and His church). What he says is as relevant since 1948 as it was when Mauro penned these words.

All in all, this is an excellent and well-reasoned study of the issue of how we should understand the prophecies found in the Bible concerning Israel.

This is a wonderful work, and I have been telling my colleagues in ministry that every pastor in the world ought to study this book. The author writes so succinctly, packing in so much rich and interrelated truth in clear, lucid passages, you will find this to be one of the most thoughtful, insightful, and accurate examples of biblical theology you are likely to come across.

If you think a nation that rejects God as a whole has an inheritance in the Kingdom of God, read this book. Mauro rejects the dispensational view and brings forth a refreshing interpretation of the scriptures. We are reminded throughout that not all who are of Israel are Israel and Mauro teaches who the true Israel of God is.

I received the correct book. It has opened my eyes to some spiritual truths. Difficult verses in the Old Testament that did not make any sense to me have been explained.
