This book deals with God’s heart and plan for Israel as laid out in the biblical text. It gives a solid foundation and grounding for someone who wants to interact in depth with God’s reasons and purposes in choosing the Jewish people. Many relevant topics are discussed including the Father’s heart for Israel, the gifts and calling of Israel, the biblical priority of Israel, ‘dragon theology’ (the spiritual roots of anti-Semitism), ‘the bear and the bunny’ (‘court etiquette’ betweens Jews and Gentiles in the body of Messiah), how to comfort Israel without abandoning the gospel, the last-days Jewish army of God, etc.
Here is what some people are saying about this book:
Avner has profound insight into the mystery of God concerning Israel, and I thank God for this insight. I recommend this book to all who desire to cooperate with God in His purpose in Israel.
Mike Bickle, Director, International House of Prayer, Grandview, Missouri; author, Passion for Jesus; co-author Growing In The Prophetic
The closer we get to the end of the age, the more essential it will be for every believer to rightly understand God’s purposes for Israel. Boskey’s important book – written with clarity, wit, and sound biblical foundations – will go a long way toward setting the record straight. The Church has not replaced Israel, nor is it possible for final, worldwide revival to culminate without Israel and the Jewish people being right in the thick of it all. If you’re hungry for truth, this book is for you.
Dr. Michael L. Brown, President, ICN Ministries, Charlotte, North Carolina; author, Our Hands Are Stained with Blood; Israel’s Divine Healer; Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus.
This book reveals the heartbeat of God for Israel, His people through whom He will yet bless the nations. It pulls biblical prophecy, history and the geography of the land of Israel together into a cohesive vision: world revival cannot and will not happen until the Gentile church recognizes God’s passion for His chosen people. I leave this book with a greater intercessory heart for Israel, with more urgent prayers for the strength of God’s people to endure the upheaval that is sure to come, yet with a more intense anticipation of the indescribable glory of God that lies just ahead for us.
Don Finto, Executive Director, The Caleb Company, Nashville, Tennessee
ISRAEL: KEY TO WORLD REVIVAL sets the record straight – Israel is no mere historical footnote, nor just a prophetic timepiece; Israel will once again play a leading role in the salvation of the world. Boskey writes with passion yet never yields to wild-eyed eschatological speculation. Scholarly but never boring, this book is a must for anyone who takes the Bible seriously.
Wayne Hilsden, Senior Pastor, King of Kings Congregation, Jerusalem
An excellent piece, hard hitting, Scriptural and prophetic in tone . . . Clearly written for any honest person searching for answers concerning Israel and the Church.
Daniel Juster, President, Tikkun Ministries, Gaithersburg, Maryland; author, Jewish Roots; co-author Israel, The Church and The Last Days
For over thirty years I’ve read a slew of “Israel Books,” most of them strongly subjective and quick to cast timeline scenarios that are soon outdated. Boskey brings us to biblical bedrock in understanding the role of the Jewish people and their chosen place in God’s plan for the nations. He allows the prophetic Scriptures to speak for themselves, revealing profound truths long ignored by the Church. A must read as we move toward the culmination of history as we’ve known it.
