Item description for Holy Land Showdown: A Conflict of Vision by K. D. Mehlhoff...
Overview Four thousand years ago, God made an oath to Abraham involving land in which he and his descendants were to possess and occupy. That very same land is the cause of the modern controversy between Israel and the Arabs. In fact, the very heart of the land promised to Abraham is perceived by the world as being illegally occupied by Abraham's modern descendants, the Jewish nation of Israel. The question is, "Is God's promise to Abraham still valid today?" If so, then the world is on a collision course with God over the status of this land. If not, then valid questions are raised regarding the integrity of Holy Scripture, because God referred to His oath to Abraham as an "everlasting covenant." There is no issue today that has greater implication concerning our future. The world faces real danger, not from the threat of terrorism, or from the weapons that terrorists may employ, but from miscalculating God's sovereign determination to keep His long-standing oath to Abraham.
Publishers Description A biblical investigation into the covenant God confirmed to Abraham reveals an astounding fact: the world views Abraham's modern descendants as illegally occupying the very land that God promised them as an everlasting possession. What are the implications?

The Bible versus Politics. An excellent study! Jun 30, 2005
This excellent, well written study, investigates the present day "controversy" between Israel and the Arabs, especially in relation to the "Holy Land".
Throughout, the book maintains that this and related issues, are rooted in what is described as God's oath to give the Land to Abraham and his descendants through Isaac and Jacob, as detailed in Genesis chapter 13, verses 14-17.
Amongst the matters discussed in some depth are what are designated herein as Biblical "Judea & Samaria", (what the world largely cites as the controversial "West Bank"). Both the Biblical and political perspectives pertaining to these and other territories receive appropriate, detailed, attention.
The book also proceeds to provide significant Biblical and historical insight into the root causes of the existing tensions between Israel and her Arab neighbours and considerable prophetical insight regarding Israel's role in the "end times".
Furnishing even more detail in relation to this context, the study then goes on to expound the alleged large-scale "confusion" among many Christians today regarding the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs.
The book citing how some Christian groups have allegedly failed to recognise the Bible's own program for peace as initially determined in what is called the Eternal, unconditional covenant with Abraham, as outlined in the Biblical book of Genesis.
Providing further emphasis, the study also alleges that some Christian groups have subsequently, mistakenly, endorsed the plan of a Palestinian "state" within Israel's present borders.
This particular matter receiving appropriate attention with due reference to Scripture, culminating with the book declaring that the world is on a "collision course with God" over the "status of the Land".
Attention is also drawn to what is further described as the 1974 "Phased Plan" for the eradication of Israel as outlined in the Palestinian National Charter, which the book declares as not having been revoked. Due reference again being provided.
The book elaborating that negotiations for Palestinian "statehood" purportedly involves negotiating with authorities that have allegedly endorsed and implemented language in their governing documents which actually call for the annihilation of another people. A message which the writer alleges that the media have failed to deliver to the populace. This is again discussed in some detail.
Throughout, the reader is eloquently shown how the world allegedly perceives the Palestinian/Arab - Israeli conflict on a "human plane", with little reference or understanding of the "spiritual" battle which dates back to the fall of man in the Garden of Eden.
The showdown declared herein as "not being between kings and kingdoms but between God and man - between Sovereign Will and human reasoning" surrounding a sliver of real estate in the Middle East.
Reference being made to the Biblical oath made by God to Abraham millennia ago which is shown in this study to be allegedly "challenged" at this time. in what is described here as the "world court of public opinion".
The intense concern surrounding the topics being analysed, emanates throughout the text, and it is creditable that so much detail is imparted in such an eminently readable presentation.
A book which I would describe as being required reading at this present time, irrespective of the individual's own stance pertaining to these ongoing events.
Whilst appreciating the contentious nature of the issues dealt with in this study, having personally studied these subjects for some three decades, I can only give this work my highest personal recommendation for it's clarity, depth and accuracy. Thank you very much for your time.
