The renowned Christian preacher and Bible scholar Charles Taze Russell (1852-1916) is known to many as the founder of Jehovah's Witnesses. But few realize that Pastor Russell was a early advocate of Zionism and that he predicted the imminent return of the Jewish people to Israel. For fifteen years David Horowitz has been researching the fascinating enigma of Pastor Russell. How did this devout Christian come to believe in God's continuing Divine Promise to the Jews? What was his relationship to the early Zionist movement? Why have the Jehovah's Witnesses, who claim him as their founder, repudiated his teachings concerning the Jews? This collection of relevant articles and letters discloses some previously unknown facts about Russell, such as his anticipation of Theodor Herzl's call for a return of the Jews to the Holy Land. --from inside jacket flap.
