This title features the two Zionisms. 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. Goldman offers a fresh perspective on the history of Zionism, deftly weaving together the stories of poets and diplomats, Christian scholars and Jewish leaders, the Vatican and the State of Israel, and modern literary masters such as Jorge Luis Borges, Robert Graves, and Vladimir Nabokov. Goldman argues that Jewish Zionism was influenced by - and cannot be understood in isolation from - Christian culture generally and Christian Zionist culture specifically. Shedding light on the deep and interrelated roots of Christian-Jewish relations, fraught with tension and ambivalence, he finds that Christian support for the Jewish Zionist cause has been essential to the success of the movement. "Christian Zionism" has a long history and has been embraced at various times by Catholics and Protestants, liberals and conservatives, reformers and traditionalists. "Zeal for Zion" places this vital movement within the larger history of Zionism, making the story of Zionism all the more rich and complex.
