‘Islamic Terrorism’ and the Palestine-Israel Conflict (Issue 5 – April 05)

Editors: Rob Hay and Jonathan Ingleby

The Rev Colin Chapman, well known throughout the Christian world for his writings on Islam and the Middle East, provides the main input for this edition.

Articles 1 and 2 are reproductions of this year’s Redcliffe Lectures on Contemporary Christianity, given by Colin, and we commend them as a very comprehensive and thoughtful discussion of issues which deserve our closest attention as Christians trying to be faithful to God’s mission in the twenty first century.

Because the articles are much longer than those usually published, we have also included edited versions (Articles 3 and 4).  Readers ‘on the run’ may find these helpful.

Two other brief articles, one on Christian-Muslim relationships (Article 5) and one on the church in post-war Iraq (Article 6) complete the edition.

Experienced readers will soon discern that Colin Chapman, in particular, is coming from one side of a very definite fence in the evangelical discourse about Islam and the Middle East.  They will also know that this debate has tended to be highly controversial.
