Evangelicals and Israel

The Story of American Christian Zionism

Stephen Spector

This is a study of Christian Zionism and the ways that religion and politics converge in American evangelicals' love and support for Israel and the Jewish people. Because of evangelicals' influence on the Middle East policies of George W. Bush, this is a topic of immense current importance. It bears on some of the most difficult and dangerous global issues -- not only the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, but also the relationship between the West and the Islamic world.
