Summary: The author seeks to find a solution for the eschatological controversy related to the land of Israel between the extremes of Fulfilment Theology which claims all divine promises to Israel and the Jews were fulfilled in Christ and various forms of Zionism which see God's hand in the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. The author rightly rejects Replacement Theology, but nevertheless represents a ‘temporary replacement’ theology. 1948 in his view has no prophetic relevance: "it is my belief that the State of Israel is not the fulfilment of OT prophecies since they are fulfilled in Christ, in the Church and in the earth."
