So how can we know the truth? Simon Ponsonby invites us to consider who God is through His own words and with the collective understanding of those who’ve studied Him throughout history. The result is a dynamic and accessible picture of the one who is God with us, working in and through us, shaping us into the character of Christ, and equipping us for the adventure of serving others. “This is simply the best contemporary book on the person and work of the Holy Spirit of which I am aware. Simon’s style of writing is accessible and easy to understand, but his topic and his content are both deep and rich. Here is a masterful communi- cator addressing the third person of the Godhead in a way that will inform, challenge, comfort, and inspire.” —Bill Johnson, professor of ethics, Husson University Simon Ponsonby (MLitt, Trinity College) is pastor of theol- ogy at St. Aldate’s church in Oxford.

BOCK AND MITCH GLASER, EDITORS 978-0-8254-4577-4 • $24.99 Paperback • 6 x 9 • 304 pages Messianic Judaism Kregel Publications Rights: World Available The relationship between the church and Israel has been the source of passionate debate among Christians through- out much of church history. In recent years the traditional pro-Israel stance of evangelicals has come under fire by those who support the Palestinian cause, calling for a new perspec- tive and more nuanced approach by Christians who believe that the land of Israel belongs to the Jewish people by virtue of God’s covenants and promises. Israel, the Church, and the Middle East challenges the superses- sionist drift of the modern church, showing that God retains a plan and purpose for the Jewish people while also addressing a number of the divisive issues raised by authors critical both of Israel and of those who affirm Israel’s right to the land.
