Product Description

Product Description

The story of the People and the Land through biblical and secular history, tracing the outworkings of God's covenants and offering explanations for both the survival and the success of this Outcast Nation.

At last a book about Israel and the Jews suitable for the wider Christian market, that manages to be both thorough and entertaining.


"I really enjoyed reading it, as with all your writing. Flavoured wih yiddish wit, I always find fresh insights and useful information ... I count myself as one of your admirers" David Pawson, Bible teacher, writer and speaker

"Excellent book!" John Pantry, Premier Radio - Inspirational Breakfast

"A sentence on the back of the book expresses my feelings exactly, ‘Steve Maltz’s writing style ensures a lively, entertaining read, but is not a comfortable book. Prepare to be deeply challenged. Pre-conceived ideas of Israel’s statehood and the position of the Jews as a nation in God’s eyes will be swept away and the position of individual Jews clarified. The author takes us through the Old Testament account of God’s everlasting covenant with Abraham and on though the years that followed. Sometimes frequent Bible quotations can break up the continuity of what the writer is trying to say, but here they are so much part of the narrative that you are compelled to read every word with fresh eyes however familiar the words are. ... The ‘Unavoidable Questions’ in the final chapter are particularly challenging, and need to be answered honestly, however uncomfortable they may make you. Highly recommended for reading by as many people as possible, of all beliefs and none."Mary Bartholemew, The GoodBookStall

"Just wanted to drop you a short note to let you know how much I am enjoying your new book. Only managed to pick it up this week and am a hundred pages in. Really good read, well done – I especially like the reoccurrences of Mr Shoots and Mr Roots! Makes me smile lots. I will be in contact again when it’s finished!" Pastor Jon Cluett, The Church at Stirling

"I have just finished it and have to say it is one of the best books I have read this year (and there have been a few). Just when I think my eyes can’t be opened any wider, they are and once you know stuff like that… you just can’t un-know it ... Outcast nation is a very, very important piece of teaching ... Many thanks to you and yours for bringing yet another amazing book as a witness to ignorant Christians of the origins of our faith " Sarah-Jane Williams, Ashburnham Place

"Just finished your book this morning!! It's excellent... thanks so much for sending it thru ... Thanks so much for being You!! Jane Urquart, Kingdom Faith

"Really good, to the point of being 'bonkers good', packed with info and understanding - I would highly recommend it as a resource and a means of encouragement to your friends in the Lord" David Mckinney

It is difficult to avoid using superlatives in reviewing this book. First, at the simplistic level, it is great value for money! This is two books in one, delivered across three ‘Acts’ - or three biblical vantage points - from which the troubled history of the Jewish nation can be viewed. Two for the price of one is not just a throw away comment; “Outcast Nation” is a reworking and up-dating of two of Maltz’s earlier books - “The Land of Many Names” and “The People of Many Names” - both now out of print. “Outcast Nation” is a worthy successor and in many respects improves on the earlier material.

Act 1 follows the story of God’s covenant people from Abraham to the First exile. Act 2 looks at the history of the Hebrew people from a spiritual vantage point, looking at what has become the world’s longest hatred – the hatred of mankind towards God’s chosen people. Act 3 looks at the modern history of Israel (again from a biblical/spiritual vantage point) and concludes with some very direct questions addressed to individual Christians – just where do we stand before our God as regards to Israe
