Images of Israel is a six-part study program to learn about modern Israel in its complexity, while bringing Christian theology and values into the conversation. Participants work with texts and video presentations to explore Israel—as a state, as a people, as a nation, and as a land—and to clarify the commitment of Christians to work for justice and peace among Palestinians and Jews.
This class was developed by a colleague of Pastor John Matthews, Dr. Peter Pettit of Muhlenberg College. Pastor John and Grace Lutheran Church hosted a workshop on this class last Spring for local area pastors. The video presentations by Dr. Pettit and other scholars along with written material in the participant book provide an excellent introduction to this timely and important topic.
