Whose Promised Land?: The Continuing Crisis Over Israel and Palestine

Author(s): Colin Chapman

Middle East Conflicts

The conflict between Israel and the Palestinians has profoundly affected the whole of the Middle East for more than 50 years, and no doubt contributed to the anger and resentment which led to the terrorist outrages of 11 September 2001. How can this conflict ever be resolved?

Writing from the perspective of someone who has lived and worked in the Middle East at various times since 1968, the author explains the roots of the conflict and outlines the arguments of the main parties involved. He also explores the theme of the land in the Old and New Testaments, pointing out legitimate and illegitimate ways of using the Bible in relation to the conflict.

This new edition is substantially revised and includes new chapters on the crisis of Zionism, the role of the USA, and Zionism and Islam.

Colin Chapman has been, since 1999, Lecturer in Islamic Studies at the Near East School of Theology, Beirut, Lebanon. He is author of several books including Christianity on Trial and The Case for Christianity (both Lion) and Islam and the West: conflict, co-existence or conversion? (Paternoster).
