For the Love of Zion
Christian Witness and the Restoration of Israel
Author: Kelvin Crombie
Product code: B34
Full of useful historical details and insights, Kelvin describes the prime ministers, statesmen and ambassadors who were among the principle players in a remarkable tale of intrigue and personal sacrifice spanning nearly 200 years of turbulent history.
It is the story of a simple, yet controversial vision - to see Jewish people find their own Messiah within their own homeland. Its drama includes the daring construction of Christ Church, set prominently in the Old City of Jerusalem, the appointment of the first Jewish Bishop in almost two thousand years, and the foundation of the Church’s Ministry Among the Jewish People. Drawing on previously unpublished archives, it is a fascinating insight into Christian initiative and prophetic faith.
About the Author
Kelvin and Lexie Crombie lived in Israel for nearly twenty-five years, and their four daughters, Orit, Nirel, Talia and Abigail were all born there.
Kelvin was based at Christ Church in the Old City of Jerusalem. He developed an intimate and profound knowledge about the history of the restoration of Israel and particularly the role of the ANZACs in that restoration, and has published a book, documentary DVD and pamphlets on the subject.
The Crombie family has relocated back to Perth, Western Australia, and is available to speak about his work in Israel, and the unique relationship between Australia & New Zealand and Israel.
