Why Still Care about Israel?
I do care deeply about the matters of the Jewish state. I think some often wonder what this country could ever have to do with them. I do not think such, but I think others do. I think the Lord does have a plan for His country and it will affect others worldwide. This book is an update on how many Biblical principles and prophecies have been fulfilled. I felt this book was a good way to introduce Israel to the world without pushing them away if the reader is not knowledgeable of the issues Israel faces on a daily basis. In essence, this book follows through on its title to make the reader understand why it is so important to still care about Israel? In Why Still Care About Israel?, Teplinsky equips the reader with the Word of the Lord through specific Bible passages that explain how God has sanctified Israel and set it apart from the world through prophecy and promise. I can see where this book obviously has a place in the hearts of believers who have an interest, who want insight, or who just want to learn more...But more than this, I can see where this book would have a valued message for the nonChristian reader. Teplinsky writes with the experience and expertise of a knowing background, with an Orthodox Jewish background and as a Messianic Jewish believer. Her writing explores how the Word is not to be replaced with theory or theology, as it stands alone. Many other subtopics are also explored making this a well-rounded read. As the book progresses, the reader will be asked questions that will allow thought and introspection. I would recommend this book to other readers.
I received this book for free through Chosen Books, a division of Baker Publishing Group, in exchange for an honest review. Check out this review on my blog: www.biguniversesmallworld.blogspot.com.
