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.
