Zeal for Zion : Christians, Jews, & the idea of the Promised Land

Author: Shalom Goldman
Publisher: Chapel Hill : University of North Carolina Press, ©2009.

Database:WorldCat
Summary:
The standard histories of Zionism have depicted it almost exclusively as a Jewish political movement, one in which Christians do not appear except as antagonists. In the highly original Zeal for Zion, Shalom Goldman makes the case for a wider and more inclusive history, one that brings the substantial Christian involvement with Zionism--most recently by American evangelical Protestants--into the light.
