Interview: Robert Nicholson, Founder & Executive Director of the Philos Project

This week we welcome Robert Nicholson to our broadcast. Robert is the founder and executive director of the Philos Project. The organization seeks to promote positive Christian engagement in the Middle East. Focusing on education and advocacy, the Philos Project reconnects Christians to their own faith, as it has brought nearly 10,000 Christian college students to Israel. The organization has made a huge impact on the way many Christians view Israel and the sincerity of their own faith.

The American Christian community and the Israeli Jewish community share a complex relationship. Israel benefits greatly from evangelical support, and Christians in America seek this same support for their brothers and sisters in the faith in Israel. Robert speaks about the risk of taking this friendship for granted. Can Israelis and evangelicals enjoy a win-win situation by supporting each other?

Israel: Whose Land Is It Anyway?

The Jewish people want it. The Arabs want it. They have gone to war because of it. What is it about the land of Israel that has caused this historic conflict between these people groups? As each group claims historic, legal, and divine rights to the land, the debate rages on while the world tries to sort out a solution. This booklet provides the indisputable facts about Israel, giving you an accurate view of each group and a definitive answer to who has the right to the land.


Apples of Gold: How Can a Cat Cross the Sea?

While visiting an elderly Christian friend in Germany, Zvi was surprised with an invitation to speak at an assembly of 400 people, filled with mostly Russian immigrants. Thanks to his ability to speak both German and Russian, it was a wonderful opportunity for Zvi to speak about Christ. He found his unbelieving Jewish listeners in Germany to be much like the unbelieving Jewish people in Israel: closed off to the name of Jesus. Listen to find out how Zvi used his unique platform as a Jewish believer to share the Word of God.

Zvi’s story is available in Elwood McQuaid’s book, “Zvi: The Miraculous Story of Triumph over the Holocaust,” available at our online store.

More stories from Zvi are also available in his book, “The Best of Zvi,” available at our online store.
