'The Land Cries Out', Salim Munayer and Lisa Loden eds.

NETS is glad to share with you the news that Wipf and Stock Publishers have recently released The Land Cries Out, edited by Salim Munayer and Lisa Loden.

Lisa Loden is the head of our leadership development program. Congratulations to her for this accomplishment.

Here is a description of the book from the publisher's website:
Our theology does not exist in a vacuum but must relate to the world we inhabit and must influence our moral and ethical actions. This is especially true when discussing theology of "the land" in the context of a violent territorial conflict. The Holy Land has seen so much bloodshed that the earth itself is crying out to God.

The chapters presented in this book form a unique collection of voices speaking from different perspectives on the issue of the theology of the land. These voices include Messianic Jewish and Palestinian Christian theologians and scholars who live in the Holy Land, as well as others from around the world.

The various chapters respect a wide spectrum of opinion and reveal how much disagreement still exists among followers of Christ. However, the dialogue generated by having these opposing voices side by side, speaking to each other rather than past each other, is encouraging. This book is both challenging and inspirational, and contributes in an innovative way to this important discussion.
The book can be purchased through the publisher's website. Here is a short bio on Lisa:

Lisa Loden is a leader in the Israeli Messianic Jewish community. She heads up and is a lecturer in the Department of Leadership Development Studies at the Nazareth Evangelical Theological Seminary. She has also served with the Fellowship of Christian Students in Israel (board chair 2009 - ) and Hagefen Publishing (board chair 2003 - ).
