The term "Zionism" was first coined in the late nineteenth century, and referred to the movement for the return of the Jewish people to an assured and secure homeland in Palestine. Ironically, this vision was largely nurtured and shaped by Christians long before it received widespread Jewish support.

This is a must read by anyone wanting to understand Christian support for the state of Israel, and by anyone who is open to thinking about whether such support is the only way to read the Bible.

This book has some merit for its historical examination and theological critique of Christian support for Zionism.

An excellent and (too?) thorough history of Christian Zionism and its various branches, together with a detailed exposition of the arguments for and against Zionism. Very helpful for thinking through one's own beliefs as well as for understanding the incredible intransigence in the Middle East.

A comprehensive and well-documented expose of the Christian Zionist movement. The influence of this movement is staggering and the subsequent political ramifications are disturbing. This book is a much needed wake-up call for Christians, highly recommended!

Christian Zionism is a very dangerous movement that too few people are aware of.
