"Back to Jerusalem" clarifies many of the complex religious, political and cultural issues facing the committed Christian who longs to see the church re-planted in the rocky soil of the Middle East. It is written as a guide for those who pray for this crucial area and as an orientation for those who take study tours or plan to serve as church planters in the area. "Back to Jerusalem" deals candidly with difficult history, opposition to the Gospel, missiological problems and victories God is winning despite all the obstacles in this volatile area. It proposes new strategies for the 21st century to match the increased responsiveness of the Muslims and Jews to the Gospel. Guidelines for personal ministry and models of existing congregations in the Holy Land make "Back to Jerusalem" essential reading for students of the Bible. Back To Jerusalem is being used as a textbook at Southeastern Baptist Seminary for the class in Current Topics in International Missions. It is written as a guide for prayer groups and orientation manual for study tours and church workers for ministries in the Middle East. It is written in answer to the questions asked by thousands of Christians about life in the Holy Land and specifically in regard to the situation of the evangelical churches in Israel/Palestine.
