His presentation, sponsored by First Presbyterian mission Abraham's Children, begins at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, at the church, 715 N. Carlton Ave.

Burge, a professor of New Testament at the college, will discuss how he believes the movement has radically changed the political situation in Israel.
