Zion's Christian Soldiers?: The Bible, Israel and the Church
Sizer, Stephen

Nottingham: Inter-Varsity Press, 2007 pp. 199. $18.00

Description: Many Bible-believing Christians are convinced that God blesses those nations that stand with Israel and curses those that don't. This belief has had a significant influence on attitudes toward the ongoing Palestinian-Israeli conflict in the Middle East. Stephen Sizer contends that this view is based on misinterpretation of the Bible. He provides an introduction to Christian Zionism and a clear response and positive alternative based on a careful study of relevant biblical texts. His intention is to encourage dialogue on the relationship between Israel and the Christian church and to offer a more constructive view of the future and our role in it.

Subjects: Methods, Theological Approaches, Biblical Theology
