Your People Shall Be My People: How Israel, the Jews and the Christian Church Will Come Together in the Last Days
by Don Finto
"Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God" (Ruth 1:16). Like Ruth in the Old Testament, every Gentile believer has come out of the land of famine and into the spiritual realm of abundance in the name of Jesus.

I'm heading to Israel with my mom and her church in March...this book is a christian perspective on how Christianity has disrespected and misunderstood the jewish people.

A great number of things come to mind when someone mentions the word family. Those with a difficult family background may remember elements of despair, brokenness, and neglect.

I had a chance to visit with the author personally in his office. He brought beautiful perspective to what God - the Redeemer is accomplishing in the end times to save his people.

This book has made me revisit Old Testament prophecy and rethink the role of the church. It's an important read in many ways for Christians who think they have replaced the Jews as God's chosen people. Finto reminds readers that "salvation is for the Jews" first and Gentiles second. Still, I had problems with the anecdotes: they left me feeling like I was the enemy, not a good evangelistic tool.
As the subtitle states, I learned so much about "how Israel, the Jews and the Christian Church will come together in the last days." This book was exciting, informative, and full of history surrounding the Jewish and Christian church. I would read this book again and again!
