Why Israel Matters : A Biblical, Historical, and Legal Case for the Jewish Homeland
From New York Times bestselling author Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel for the America's Center for Law and Justice, and Donald Trump's attorney, comes a comprehensive look at Israel--one of the world's most controversial nations--and its importance to us as Americans and as a key focal point to the future of the world.
The State of Israel, and its very right to exist, has been a critical issue in not only the Middle East, but throughout the world. It has been a stated desire of ISIS, Hamas, Hezbollah, and Iran to wipe the country off the map, and has even been questioned by UNESCO if its existence is legitimate.
Jay Sekulow comes full force defending Israel's right to exist as a sovereign nation. With his team of lawyers, he has extensively researched and examined Israel through three perspectives--biblical, legal, and historical. He explains both the legitimacy of Israel and its importance in the world today, from the Balfour Declaration of November 1917 to the aftermath of two world wars to the United Nations Resolution that ultimately led to the creation of the State of Israel.
Engaging, exhilarating, and relevant to today's politically fraught culture, this account of Israel transports you into a different time and place and brings to life the triumphs, devastations, and frequent misconceptions of one of our oldest nations.
