Under Vine and Fig Tree: Biblical Theologies of Land and the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict

Although a bit dated, this collection of articles, from workers in the Holy Land, is a good introduction to the theological issues involved in the conflict


Rooted in Mennonite Central Committee’s nearly six decades of work alongside Palestinians and Israelis, Under Vine and Fig Tree examines ways in which the Bible has been used to justify violence and dispossession and ways it can be received as a life-giving word for Palestinians and Israelis wishing to live securely under their own vines and fig trees.
