Supersessionism isn't a doctrine that belongs to a checklist in order to determine who is a part of a certain theological persuasion. It is something that, though not as central as Christ, is fundamental in the interpretation of Old and New Testament prophecy (eschatology), and, in opposition to the claims of most covenantalists shows forth a continuity between the testaments that has more integrity with what biblical passages (in their own context) actually say, than the way most supersessionists interpret scripture. While upholding biblical truth, about God's future purposes concerning the nation of Israel, it doesn't treat Jewish people with a view that they can do no wrong and neither does it claim that Israel is wholly responsible for the problems in the middle east. As Calvin writes, "If Christian Zionists are to avoid an 'Israel right or wrong' mentality, by the same token, Christian Palestinianism should reject an 'Israel is ALWAYS wrong' position. The evidence on the ground suggests this is simply not true. I would much prefer to be a Christian in Israel, despite the problems they face there, than in many Muslim countries." Hermeneutically speaking when we pay attention to Jacob Prasch's contribution and note the real sitz im leben of a number of Pauline letters, our interpretation of scripture may be less polarised and more controlled, in the whole literal/symbolic debate than has appeared from the time of the Alexandrians and Antiochenes. I well recommend this book for its honesty and integrity in relating these truths, taught in scripture, to the present situation in Israel today.
