In Has the Church Replaced Israel?, author Michael J. Vlach evaluates the doctrine of replacement theology (also known as supersessionism) down through history but ultimately argues in favor of the nonsupersessionist position. Thoroughly vetting the most important hermeneutical and theological issues related to the Israel/church relationship, Vlach explains why, “there are compelling scriptural reasons in both testaments to believe in a future salvation and restoration of the nation Israel.”
Michael J. Vlach is professor of Theology at The Master's Seminary in Sun Valley, California. He holds degrees from the University of Nebraska (B.S.), The Master's Seminary (M.Div.), and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (Ph.D.).
