Miracle of Israel
Everyone is looking for a miracle. Families devastated by a faltering economy. A college student facing the horrific diagnosis of cancer. Corporately, whole nations are teetering on the brink of despair and chaos. The Miracle of Israel is a stunning examination of the millennia-old love that God has for His people that:
- Clearly conveys the promise God gave to Abraham
- Examines the ancient prophecies regarding Israel that have happened and are unfolding even today
- Provides an easy-to-read timeline of miracle after miracle related to the nation of Israel
Tracing the history of the Jewish people to the present day, the authors look at prophecy after prophecy that clearly attest to the Lord’s miraculous promises. From historical records to personal, dramatic stories, the Miracle of Israel shows us that in keeping epic promises to the nation of Israel, God’s provision for each of us is sure, perfect, and on time, every time.
This book is about a miracle and subsequent miracles. The historical narrative we trace begins in Ur of the Chaldeans in Mesopotamia, moves to an ancient land known as Canaan, then to Egypt, continues to a cross in Jerusalem, and spreads to the many nations of our world before arriving at a barn in Austria. It then comes to a courtroom in Vienna, continues to a hotel in Switzerland, a house in Tel Aviv, the West Wing of the White House, and to presidential palaces in Cairo, Egypt; Amman, Jordan; and Damascus, Syria.
As we journey we will be introduced to men of faith, such as Abraham, Moses, King David, Solomon, and many others. You will meet men and women of vision such as Eliezer Ben Yehuda, Theodore Herzl, David Ben-Gurion, Golda Meir, and Menachem Begin. We will dig into the role played by former presidents of America and be amazed as we see God working through men in history to bring about the fulfillment of His Word.
This story recalls the horrors of the Holocaust, the struggle of a people to survive and ultimately flourish in a difficult and hostile land surrounded by enemies. It is a record of wars fought, ethnic clashes, and constant interference and pressures from foreign powers. This is a story of a people and a nation hated by most, tolerated by some, cherished by God, and loved by the followers of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
This journey finally ends on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, having encompassed a time span of six thousand years. Our quest will take us back to the Garden of Eden in ancient Mesopotamia and forward to modern-day Israel and finally on to the New Jerusalem.
This is a book about miracles of history that affect each and every one of us, whether we recognize them or not. We will ponder how the Creator God has and is working in the history of His world. In the end we will see that God has done and will do exactly as He promised as recorded in Isaiah 46:9–10, where He states:
Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me. Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done. saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure.
The Creator God had a plan from the very beginning, and if we look for His hand in world history, both past and present, we can be certain of His hand in the future. Join us now as we journey down the corridors of time, along the halls of history and experience with me, The Miracle of Israel: The Shocking, Untold Story of God’s Love for His People.

One of the world’s smallest countries is also routinely the biggest news story, and as a journalist, I find that profoundly interesting. Looking behind the headlines, however, is even more compelling, and any objective person can see how special Israel is in history. Now my friends Gary Frazier and Jim Fletcher have produced a remarkable book detailing the supernatural preservation of the Jewish people. I strongly recommend that you read The Miracle of Israel; it will strengthen your faith and reach those in your circle who are skeptical of the Bible.

I have known Gary Frazier for many years. I trust him and his knowledge of Israel and his love for the Word of God. I, too, love Israel and have traveled there more than ten times. I read with excitement this new book by Gary Frazier and Jim Fletcher, which tells the story of God keeping His promises. It is the story of a sovereign God. It is a wonderful portrayal of prophecy promised and promises fulfilled. As Gary and Jim tell the story of Israel’s history, Isaiah 46 and Deuteronomy 3 come alive! In this wonderful book, these two authors powerfully portray a strong apologetic for the Word of God as it predicted, revealed, and proved the reality of the nation of Israel and the coming of a Savior from that nation. They tell accurately of events that have occurred, that are occurring, and that will occur. I encourage you to read this new book.

This journey opened my eyes and heart to the greatness of our God. The Word of God came alive! Therefore, The Miracle of Israel communicates one resounding truth: God lives! One of His most amazing proofs of this is His land and His people. When you read this book, your faith will come alive!
