Visiting Israel has changed the way I approach God’s Word for the rest of my life. When I read the Bible or hear a sermon, I not only remember the sights, but I remember the sounds, the smells, and the culture that surrounds those places. Every day I am reminded that the Bible is the story of real people in real places, and a real God that I still have the privilege of serving today.
After touring Israel with the Shalom team, my Bible reading will never be the same. I now can picture where the feeding of the five thousand took place, what the wilderness of Judea looked like when David was fleeing from Saul, and the hills of Galilee where Jesus walked among countless other places. It was an incredible experience.

Through Jewish Eyes
In Through Jewish Eyes, you’ll find a myriad of parallels between Jewish customs and New Testament truth. Drawing from his own Jewish heritage, Hartman demonstrates how to use these parallels as points of contact for a gospel witness and for a better understanding of the New Testament s Jewish background. He speaks about the need for Christians to understand Judaism and to reach their Jewish neighbors and coworkers with news of the Messiah. Through Jewish Eyes will give you deeper insight into the Scripture and into Jewish culture.
