Many years ago Nancy Petrey set out on a journey of discovery, one that would lead her from her home in Alabama and from ministry with her husband in churches in Mississippi to the Golan Heights, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and many other locations in Israel.
This wasn’t just a personal journey of discovery. She was not searching for roots of physical ancestry. She was searching for the Jewish roots of the Church, of the Hebrew scriptures and of Jesus, her Jewish Messiah.
This journey required not just traveling across the sea to the Holy Land. It also involved learning new concepts and new ways of thinking.
You’ll learn about things like Zionism, anti-Semitism, the Hebrew language, relations between Jews and Gentiles, what is a Christian Zionist, and who are the chosen people. You’ll be challenged to think about the relationship between Israel and the Palestinians, how the church needs to relate to the Jewish people and how to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. You will begin to see the Jews as the natural brothers of Jesus, and, above all, learn to love God’s chosen people as you experience Nancy’s journey to deeper understanding.

Here are some comments from advance readers Jewish Roots Journey:
I thank God for calling Nancy Petrey to be a “mizpah for Israel” and using her in such powerful ways. In this book she gives the exciting account of how God awakened her to the Jewish roots of our faith and how it changed her life. Interwoven with her testimony are many nuggets of precious truths about Israel. There is an awesome power in the truth.
There is a spiritual battle raging today over Israel and the Jewish people. Satan is making a final attempt to wipe out the chosen people, like he has tried so many times before in history. It is the 1930s all over again, and we must not be silent but speak out on behalf of Israel. Experts predict that the young generation of Christians in America will take the side of the Palestinians in the conflict in the Middle East. May God use this book to open the eyes of many people and raise up hundreds of mizpahs for Israel to undo that prediction!
Blessings in abundance!

In her Memoirs of a Mizpah, Nancy Petrey combines stories from her personal journeys to Israel and around the United States with the knowledge of Israel’s biblical and modern history she has gained through study to provide an account of her understanding of God’s coming redemption. Inspired by Corrie ten Boom and Lydia Prince, this book is a passionate retelling of her personal encounters with the God of Israel, the Messiah of Israel and the People of Israel and her God given passion for the Jewish people. Through sharing these experiences she hopes to inspire and encourage her readers to become “watchmen on the walls of Jerusalem” and connect to the Jewish roots of the Christian faith. Read her memoirs and be encouraged by what God has done and continues to do in Israel and within the body of Messiah.
Nancy Petrey is one of the most exuberant and enthusiastic people I know who is involved with the Israel work. She loves the country, the State of Israel, the history of the Jewish people, and with her marvelous gifts of music and radiant worship, she is able to reach many people with her influence. Israel is truly blessed to have a friend like Nancy.

It is a delight for us to recommend the reading of this book by our friend, Nancy Petrey. Mary and I always enjoy our encounters with her and her husband Curtis, when he is with her. We consider it an honor to be mentioned several times in the recounting of her memories in and out of Israel. Come and join Nancy on a journey. Yes, the physical journey of her life and times since discovering the incredible reality of God. But even more than that, a journey of amazing learning and understanding of how God shows us, like a time-released capsule, His reality through the Land and People of Israel.
Each chapter is like sitting down with a cup of coffee or tea and listening as Nancy shares with you the wonderful things she has seen and learned. I particularly enjoyed the story of her encounter with a sparrow while she was playing the piano and singing, “His Eye is on the Sparrow.” As you follow along with her on this journey, you will also learn as she did so many incredible truths about God’s love story in His Word, and how that relationship is available to us today. You’ll even get practical advice about “Mr Expert Guide” and wild taxi rides! The Appendix section of this book alone, along with the richness of the memoirs of Nancy Petrey, will make this book a treasure in your home.
