" I just finished reading Pastor Ray Bentley’s new book, The Holy Land Key and I am almost out of breath. It is a fast paced journey filled with facts and information, tempered by heartwarming stories about people you will learn to love and appreciate when you see them through Ray’s eyes.
Pastor Ray Bentley has earned the respect and admiration of many leaders in Israel and of the Messianic Jewish community around the world. He is known as a “lover of the Jewish people” and for decades has invested his time, energy resources and those of his family and congregation in supporting the nation of Israel and demonstrating that true followers of Yeshua the Messiah love the Jewish people.
Pastors Ray’s concern for the Jewish people is founded in Scripture and this becomes abundantly clear in reading his new book, The Holy Land Key. Pastor Ray waves a beautiful story of God’s love for both Jews and Arabs through the exposition of key prophetic biblical texts and by telling the modern day stories of Jewish and Arab believers who live in Israel or who are active in God’s work among the children of Abraham. More than anything, this wonderful book reveals the heart of a local church pastor for God’s chosen people.
This not the everyday book on end time prophecy as it is told with an eye towards the future but a heart for God’s present work in the Holy Land among both Jews and Arabs. Anyone interested in the Bible, the Jewish people and the Middle East in general will appreciate this strategic, relevant and engaging book. I recommend it and know that the reader will be especially encouraged and blessed by Pastor Ray’s effort."
—Dr. Mitch Glaser, President Chosen People Ministries
“What I appreciate most about The Holy Land Key is the common ground Ray Bentley and I have in our hearts. We both desire that out of every tribe, tongue, and nation countless numbers of individuals would be saved and brought into the kingdom of Christ. I appreciate the growing interest Ray has in the perspective of Arab and Palestinian believers living in the land. We do not have to allow differences to keep us from loving each other and enjoying the wondrous friendship and fellowship Christ brings.”

“Seeing prophecy through the eyes of God’s chosen people, Israel, is the only way to fully understand all of its implications. Ray Bentley sets forth the importance of being on God’s calendar and seeing the patterns that are visible in God’s feasts. Ray gives us a greater understanding of the signs in the heavens as God’s signals of coming events.”
—Pastor Mark Biltz,
founder of El Shaddai Ministries
“In The Holy Land Key, Ray Bentley ties together history, current events, prophecy, Israel’s feasts and festivals, and the progress of the gospel among Jews and Arabs. Ray also explains the mystery of the Messiah’s return, which God laid out for us to see through dramatic signs in the heavens. This book will challenge your thinking, fill you with hope, and bless your life.”
—Tom Doyle, vice-president of e3 Partners,
author of Dreams and Visions: Is Jesus Awakening the Muslim World?
“The Holy Land Key offers a look into the heart of one who is a lover of God’s people and a true friend of the Jewish people. Ray’s longtime interest in God’s covenant with His people, Israel, and his insatiable desire to find God’s mind on the issues of the conflict in the Middle East, make this book a pleasure to read.”
