Where is the Body? is a truly biblical, yet all the while tongue-in-cheek, expose of a narrow divide between two unfortunate heresies that denigrate the Jews from Emperor Constantine's era onward. A classic quip suggests that the Church "unwittingly sat down on the good Emperor's pet porcupine and we're still pulling out the quills!" Anti-Semitism seems to be the last call for reformation in the Church today. By popular demand the book has been translated into Finnish, Russian, Dutch and French.
Here is an intriguing expose on the relationship between Israel and the Christian Church. Pulling no punches with the alleged anti-Semitic, end-times theologians of our time, Victor Schlatter draws on his experiences as a third-world Bible translator to present some fascinating insights into the biblical perspective on who belongs where in the body of Christ. With some surprising conclusions about, for example, who the '144,000' are, this well-read commentator is sure to give your brain a wake-up nudge as you contemplate your stance on end-times "-ology". This is a must-read, biblically based alternative viewpoint with more than a little credibility.'

"Author Victor Schlatter has accomplished a very commendable endeavor by writing on the subject of Israel, the Jewish people, and the Church in this book. He clearly makes his case that the Jew and the non-Jewish Christian is 'of one family growing together... of two olive trees grafted into one, waiting for their Lord to appear.' His insight into the meaning of the 'mystery' mentioned by St. Paul in his letters to the Romans and the Ephesians, clarifies the 'secret' of how the believing Jew and Gentile come to be part of the Kingdom of God. The Body has two parts or two identical halves - what an honor to be part of one of those halves! Our appreciation to Mr. Schlatter for working through this theological and historical issue, especially as it relates to the modern Jewish State of Israel."
