Israel Makes A Difference!

Why We Go There and Stand by Her Side


It is with deep humility and gratitude to the Lord that we celebrate 80 years of Israel My Glory magazine! In this issue, we discuss how Israel makes all the difference when it comes to God, theology, salvation, and the Bible. Eventually, redemptive history will be completed through Israel, which will play a key role in the future of the world.
IMG In Depth: Our radio host, Chris Katulka, interviews Steve Herzig about his article, "My Seven Chapters."
