This doctrine in its various forms, is still deeply entrenched in the Church, with disastrous consequences for its relationship to the Jewish People. This booklet addresses these issues and brings understanding and countering many present-day attitudes.
The belief that the Church has replaced or superseded Israel in the purposes of God has been prevalent for almost two thousand years. This traces the sad history of this teaching and helps Christian leaders counter un-Biblical attitudes to Israel.
"One of the greatest tragedies to befall the Church was the severance from her Jewish roots, a rift which has been a cause of many heresies...and departures from Biblical truth and lifetstyle."
