In four parts - Biblical Foundations, The Church and the Legacy of Israel, Modern Times, and Israel Defends Her Right to Life - Merkley takes his readers back to the origins of Christian Zionism and recalls the story of Christian attitudes towards the Jews over the two millennia since the destruction of the Second Temple. Confronting the historical distortions of the anti-Zionists, he provides a calm, proud and scholarly defense of Christian Zionism. For readers seeking a deeper understanding of Christian attitudes towards Israel, this is a must read.
