Upcoming: Webinar with Dr. Walter Brueggemann

Global Ministries is excited to announce a special webinar opportunity with Rev. Dr. Walter Brueggemann who will be joining us December 9th at 1pm ET to discuss his new book Chosen?: Reading the Bible Amid the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.

About Chosen?
The situation in modern-day Israel/Palestine raises questions for many Christians. In Chosen? Walter Brueggemann explores these issues and provides candid commentary about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Are modern Israeli citizens the descendants of the Israelites in the Bible whom God called Chosen? Was the promise of land to Moses permanent and irrevocable? What about others living in the promised land? How should we read the bible in light of the modern situation? Who are the Zionists, and what do they say?

In four Chapters, Brueggemann addresses the main questions people have with regards to what the Bible has to say about this ongoing debate. A question-and-answer section with Walter Brueggemann, a glossary of terms, a study guide, and guidelines for respectful dialogue are also included.

Walter Brueggemann is William Marcellus McPheeters Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary, an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, and the author of dozens of books.

This opportunity is part of Global Ministries’ ongoing Middle East Initiative – which includes Bible Studies, Webinars, Advent Materials, as well as advocacy opportunities.

Space is limited – Reserve your spot today!
