Publisher's Description

One Nation Holds the Key to the Destiny of Mankind

Though it may seem distant from our modern lives, the drama playing out in the Middle East on the world stage has consequences beyond what we can imagine. And in the tumult of it all, one tiny nation will become the watershed of world events, affecting us all.

In this accessible, behind-the-scenes guide, internationally renowned teacher and scholar Derek Prince goes beyond the headlines and immerses you in what the Bible has to say about Israel. Tracing her long, astonishing history, he offers insight into the mounting tension and exposes the destructive enemy now stalking this war-torn land.

Accessible and fascinating, The Key to the Middle East also reveals God's plans for all nations--and what our future could look like. Prince's depth of understanding and interpretation of Scripture will challenge and encourage you. But above all, you will be brought face-to-face with the God who remembers, honors and lovingly guards His promises to His people.

    I know a bit about the history of Israel but this book goes into great detail. It's amazing to be living in the world today watching God's prophetic word concerning Israel unfold before our very eyes. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to understand Israel's real place and significance in the world today.

    The latest revision of "The Key to the Middle East: Discovering the Future of Israel in Biblical Prophecy" by Derek Prince is a short, easy-to-read look at numerous Biblical prophecies which have been- or remain to be- fulfilled in modern times. Mr. Prince writes from his first hand observations living in the Palestine at the end of WWII and during the tumultuous years leading up to, and following the emergence of Israel as a new nation. His experiences lend a great weight of authority to his interpretation of Scripture, as does the obvious wisdom and humility that permeates his writing. Mr. Prince has lived long and seen much, and his careful study of the Bible and events in the Middle East over the past 60 years reflects this.

    I am a student of International Relations and in graduate school I focused on the Middle East, and Israel in particular. So yes, I'm immediately attracted to a book like this, as I seek to add to my understanding of the crucial role that Israel has played throughout the history of the world, and will increasingly play in the times to come. But one needn't be a scholar to enjoy this book. The writing style is casual- almost conversational- rather than academic, though the study of prophetic Scriptures is thorough and well organized.

    I was especially impressed with Mr. Prince's ability to provoke questions in my mind and leave me hanging for awhile, and then answer those questions later. One very clear example was his allusion in Chapter 8 to the judgment of the nations. I felt he left so much unsaid, and I scribbled down a number of questions, only to find in Chapter 9 that the entire chapter was devoted to that topic.

    I also appreciated very much Mr. Prince's practical exhortation on how one should respond to this book and what he has taught.

    Finally, I loved the chronology of Israel's modern history at the end of the book; it was very helpful for keeping events in proper order.

    I think that the Western Church probably misses it more often than not when it comes to understanding the role of Israel and the people of Israel in God's plan. "The Key to the Middle East" would be a great place to start if you're ready to expand your personal understanding, and I'd encourage you to.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book for review from Chosen Books. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.

    This is a reprint of The Last Word on the Middle East (1982) and Promised Land (2005). Prince died in 2003. Material has been added by the Editorial Team of Derek Prince Ministries to somewhat update the book.

    The first part of the book gives an historical perspective. Prince had spent several years in the Holy Land after WW II so he was able to give some insights into the land and its inhabitants. "Israel was God's prophetic clock," he wrote. "By restoring the people to the land, God had set the clock once again in motion." (21) He showed how events fulfilled the prophecy of Israel's restoration, with the ultimate restoration being spiritual. He noted the importance of the Six-Day War, writing that it was "a decisive turning point in human history." (102) Jewish control of Jerusalem meant the "times of the Gentiles" is drawing to a close. Jewish control of Israel is also essential to the establishment of God's Kingdom on earth.

    Prince believed that Christians (and the church) owe a great spiritual debt to Israel. Christians should be seeking to repay that debt and to make amends for all the evil done to the Jews in the name of Christianity. (120) Christians have an "obligation," he wrote, "to do everything Scripture requires of us to help the Jewish people regain the fullness of their God-appointed inheritance, both natural and spiritual." (121) He called on nations to align themselves with Israel, thus cooperating with God's purposes. He also created various scenarios as to how the future might play out.

    This book is a bit dated, I think. I could tell that the majority of the text was written some forty years ago. So much has happened since then. This book is definitely not a latest, up to date look at Israel and its circumstances (although the Editorial Team has updated the time line at the end of the book).

    Prince did give a good history of Israel and that is valuable. There is also an excellent section on prophecy and fulfillment. These two areas would be good for relatively new Christians or at least ones new to the ideas of prophecy and Israel's place in it. Seasoned Christians will probably not find any new insights in this book.

    As with many who write about Israel and the fulfillment of prophecy, Prince ignored New Testament references that have relevance to the role of Israel today. For example, Galatians 3:16-17 suggests that the promises to Abraham have, in some sense, fulfillment in Jesus. Then there is Galatians 3:29 that says Christians are Abraham's seed. Any book that concentrates on God fulfilling His promises through the Jews should at least mention these verses and somehow address them.

    Christians who believe that God's current plan for mankind revolves around the nation of Israel will like this book. Christians who are looking for a deeper understanding of what God is doing in the world, including the ramifications of New Testament truths on the fulfillment of prophecy, will be disappointed.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
