"It's great to be back on Cornerstone TV's Real Life," says Hershey. "The show is based in metro Pittsburgh, and I'm honored to continue to share God's heart for Israel, for the Jewish people, and the ongoing prophetic fulfillment that is happening there. With anti-Semitism on a dramatic rise in the US, its time to stand with the Jewish people and Israel."
Israel Rising, which was launched to celebrate the anniversary of the formal establishment of the modern State of Israel 70 years ago on May 14,1948, has recently captured the Number 1 spot on five separate Amazon sales charts, including the online behemoth's General Israel Travel Guides chart, Christian Books & Bibles: Prophecies chart, Israel & Palestine History chart, History of Judaism chart, and Torah chart. The title continues to maintain a solid presence on those lists.

Based on biblical prophecy found in Ezekiel 36, the gorgeously illustrated four-color Israel Risinggift book includes more than 175 photos from photojournalist Elise Monique Theriault, comparing vintage pictures of the Holy Land to current pictures taken from the same angle, revealing the miraculous transformation of the region from a barren wasteland to a thriving modern nation since the rebirth of Israel.
"At the dawn of Israel's 70th year, Doug Hershey's new book, Israel Rising, is right on time," declares former Israeli Ambassador to the United States Danny Ayalon. "The photographic evidence presented of the restoration of the Land of Israel is nothing less than miraculous. As you view ancient prophecy through a modern lens, over 100 then-and-now photos come alive side by side."
