    Spiritual Restoration: Israel’s New Covenant Move

    The Sunday before their departure, Parsons preached at Park Street Church in Boston, and his sermon proved prophetic. In part, he said, “Destroy, then, the Ottoman Empire, and nothing but a miracle would prevent [the Jewish people’s] immediate return from the four winds of heaven.” Today, when a visitor stands at Jaffa Gate—crammed with taxis, …

    Daniah Greenberg: A Gentile With a Heart for Israel

    Can Prophecy Be Saved?

    Most young believers no longer uphold Bible prophecy and eschatology as key components of the faith, opting to focus more on feeding the poor and ending human trafficking. But where does that leave Bible prophecy and teaching in today’s church?

I was enjoying my first trip to Israel with famed Bible prophecy teacher and Israel supporter David Allen Lewis. We had been traipsing around that tiny country of huge significance while gathering interviews for Lewis’ new book. And here we were, shaking hands with Ariel Sharon, the legendary Israeli general-turned-political official, and being seated in his Tel Aviv office.

The wily general, now an older statesman, smiled broadly as he recounted for us his first memory of Lewis.
