Do you have Christian friends that call you a 'dispensationalist', as if it is a bad thing? Have you tried to explain to people why you believe the Church will be spared the 70th Week of Daniel?
You really cant do it effectively unless you can answer these two questions -
1. What is the Church
2. What is Israel
This briefing pack sets you on the right parth to clarify why the Church is not Israel, and why Israel still has a national identity.
It won't make you an expert, but it will help you start to discern the difference between the two.

Objection, Your Honor!
Our relationship with our Heavenly Father is just that - a relationship. He is a person, not an impersonal force.
When we try to argue over legal points with God, we are slighting the majesty of His love, suffering, and salvation by which we are members of His household. Legal interpretation and challenges will get us into trouble, much like it did Job: God's promises to His beloved Israel are not contingent upon human interpretation.
These covenants are permanent and contingent on God's ability to fulfill them; surely we can trust in total fulfillment now and in the future. Jesus calls the Church, "First", because He saw Israel coming into his glory and redemption, but all in good time.
