    Sandra Teplinsky has done extensive research to produce a lively, to-the-point, easily readable book. It is underscored with tenderness and sensitivity for people of all nations, including Palestinians. I found Why Still Care About Israel usable as a personal devotional, reflecting the love of God, as well as solidly educational. I recommend this work to anyone who appreciates the combination of deep spiritual nourishment with the excellence of intellectual, scriptural and historical integrity. I recommend it as a must read for Jews and Gentiles.

    This significantly revised version of the 2003 book Why Care Abo

    This significantly revised version of the 2003 book Why Care About Israel, by the same author, is poignant, engaging, well balanced and timely. Sandra graciously names several groups of readers that might benefit from reading this volume, however in my personal opinion this is a "must read" for every Christian/Messianic Jew.
    The reality is that God is moving in powerful ways in relation to His great Meta narrative, which holds at its very core the physical and spiritual significance of the people of Israel. Add to this the rise in anti-Israel theologies that are re-emerging at an alarming rate, not to mention the social injustices facing Israel as a nation and you will find ample reason to take the time to listen to this authors concise and revealing work.
    With the ongoing deligitimization of Israel as a nation and the rise in new Antisemitism, every Christian should be concerned. Sandra presents a refreshingly optimistic truth, founded on the Father heart of G-d and a wealth of factual information. This book is a book of hope and future for both Israel and the Christian Church.
    Don't miss your opportunity to read it. THIS IS A FIVE STAR knock it out of the park title!!!!!

    Wonderfully written and researched, Teplinsky does a phenomenal

    Wonderfully written and researched, Teplinsky does a phenomenal job of articulating the swirl of controversy surrounding Israel.  She uses Bible verses from both the New and Old Testament to show that the Bible in no way supports the idea that God is done with or doesn't care about Israel anymore.  She touches upon replacement theology as well as Antisemitism.  There is even a section of the book that goes through Church history and how there have been countless edicts throughout the years that have tried to rid Christianity of its Jewish roots--sometimes killing Jews in the process.  Another interesting part of the book dives deep into how the media does not portray Israel accurately.  There is even a vague reference to a Italian photojournalist who, in 2011, did an expose on how much media from the Middle East is staged (Google Ruben Salvadori).  Teplinsky also goes in depth on fundamentalist Islam and what the Quran says on eradicating Israelities.  This is an eye-opening read for people of all faiths that will make people think twice before demonizing a persecuted people who is currently fighting for its right to exist.  I also liked how the author threw in Yeshua and Yahweh in her vocabulary of this text.

    Sandra Teplinsky has hit another home run! She has taken a difficult, ever-changing subject, thoroughly researched it, cleared away the media bias we are constantly bombarded with, and presented a package full of passion, logic, and compassion. We sense God's heart for the individuals involved as well as the nations. Sandra's walk as an Israeli believer and mother coupled with her theological and legal training gives her a perspective we cannot find elsewhere. This is a must read for anyone concerned with biblical truth, the Middle East, and the plans and purposes of God. Thank you Sandra!.

    Sandra Teplinsky has written another wonderful and informative book. Why Still Care About Israel gave me a new way to look at Israel and the Arab-Israeli conflict. The book is packed with information that you would not read elsewhere and taught me more about God's plan for Israelis and Arabs. This is a well research book that should be on every student of the Middle East's reading list. I enjoyed every minute of it.
