Pervading culture and politics alike, Christian Zionism is the fastest growing religious movement in Christianity today, with current believers thought to exceed five million in the US alone. Proposing a literal reading of the bible, it states that a Jewish return to the Holy Land is a requirement for the Second Coming and inevitable Armageddon. Promoting common interests between Israel and the Christian World, and possessing many well-moneyed advocates, Christian Zionism has a far-reaching influence in today's world. In this illuminating book, professor and rabbi Dan Cohn-Sherbok traces the transition of Christian Zionism from Puritan times to the present, examining the ever increasing role of Armageddon in its belief structure and studying its deep-rooted sway on both the Middle East peace process and the American political system. Covering Hal Lindsey's books and his invitations to White House Seminars, Cohn-Sherbok inspects the growth of the movement and its quintessential role as a political lobbying force. Invaluable to anyone who seeks a greater understanding of the interplay between religion, politics and the end of the world, this is an insightful book into an absorbing aspect of American society.
