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.
"This volume offers a careful and well-grounded study of the Scriptures, Old Testament and New, as they relate to the vexing questions of land ownership which lie at the root of the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict." --Dorothy Jean Weaver, Professor of New Testament, Eastern Mennonite Seminary

"This book offers a corrective perspective to common Christian Zionist understandings of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. I hope it helps Christians in America more fully acknowledge the lens through which the Word of God is read, especially regarding current events in the Middle East." --Keith Weaver, Moderator, Lancaster Conference of the Mennonite Church USA
