    Palestinian evangelicals pilot theological paradigm shift

    07 March 2014

    The Christ at the Checkpoint conference will rally hundreds of peace activists, church leaders, evangelical Christians and academics for dialogue and discussion about the role of Christian zionism in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The gathering will reflect the growing challenge to longstanding evangelical theological positions which have legitimized Israel's occupation of the Palestinian territories.

    The conference will examine unjust realities in Palestine, empower the Palestinian church in achieving peace, and explore the role of Christianity, above all the evangelical church, in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The conference signifies a transformation in traditional evangelical attitudes to Israel through discourse about the practical implications of theological positions.

    More information on the conference is available in a Ma’an news agency report and in the website of Christ at the Checkpoint
