The momentous issues raised in the first edition of this book remain important for our times. A new chapter, Israel at the End-Time of History, has been added to make the book even more relevant. Here is a concise yet masterful survey of the condition of God's chosen people - the Jews. Their present dilemma is analyzed in two contexts: (1) the past - historical developments from biblical times, and (2) the future - the biblical theme of hope for Israel's spiritual restoration. Christians can profit greatly from Dr. Kac's thorough analysis and efficient use of source material, ancient and modern. He thoughtfully challenges those from both the Jewish and evangelical Christian faiths.
