On my desk: Moseley on Israel’s nationhood

Moseley, Carys, Nationhood, Providence, and Witness: Israel in Modern Theology and Social Theory (Cambridge: James Clarke, 2013)

I just finished reviewing Moseley’s book for Theological Book Review (based at Liverpool Hope University). She takes modern theologians to task over their lack of attentiveness to the theological concept of nationhood, as applied to the so-called ‘problem of Israel’ (read Rom 9–11). The legitimacy of the current State of Israel is normally discussed from the standpoint of politics and culture. But Moseley wants to offer a corrective; theologians must consider Israel in terms of providence, before jumping straight to eschatology and/or prophecy. There is more to say, but I will leave the juicy part of my review for the bit that’s being published. I will say, however, that, although this book is written at a high academic level, it is worth reading if you are at all interested in, and puzzled by, the question of Israel in these days between Christ’s first and second comings.
