As director of publications of Nazareth Seminary, I am pleased to share with everyone our seminary’s newest Mary’s Well Occasional Paper: ‘An Introduction to the Convention of Evangelical Churches in Israel’ (Volume 3:3, October 2014).
This latest paper is by the Rev. Azar Ajaj, president of Nazareth Evangelical Theological Seminary, and Dr. Philip Sumpter, adjunct professor of Old Testament at the European School of Culture and Theology.
The CECI is an attempt, so far unsuccessful, of indigenous (Arab) Israelis who are evangelicals to obtain official recognition from the State of Israel as a recognized religious community. The article provides an account of the CECI’s genesis and its current projects and challenges.
