Pilgrim Press, the publishing house of the United Church of Christ headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, has offered to include a 6 x 9 inch insert (produced by CAMERA) detailing factual errors that appear in the second edition of Whose Land? Whose Promise? What Christians are Not Being Told about Israel and the Palestinians by Rev. Dr. Gary Burge, a professor of the New Testament at Wheaton College in Illinois. The insert, which CAMERA is currently producing, will be included in future purchases of the book.

Pilgrim Press made the offer to CAMERA after the organization alerted the publishing house about some of the errors that appeared in the new and revised version of the text which was published in November, 2013. The first edition of the text, which was marred with factual errors, was published in 2003. While the author made some corrections in the second edition, some errors from the first edition remain. There are some new errors and omissions that have been introduced into the second edition. CAMERA will detail some of these errors on its website in the days ahead.

Burge's book about the conflict was first published by Zondervan in 1993 under the title Who Are God’s People in the Middle East? What Christians Are Not Being Told about Israel and the Palestinians.

In addition to appearing at the Christ at the Checkpoint conferences in 2010 and 2012, Burge, an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (USA), is a regular speaker at Willow Creek Community Church in Chicago.

please do not contribute to legitimization of these antisemites within christendom who should be marginalized as pariahs; an appropritate person can write a book instead, not a tiny insert sure to bolster sales and boost the anti-Israel interfaith movement
