A critical examination of political Zionism, a topic often considered taboo in the West, is long overdue. The discussion of Christian Zionism is usually confined to evangelical and fundamentalist settings. The present volume will break the silence currently reigning in many religious, political, and academic circles and, in so doing, will provoke and inspire a new, challenging conversation on theological and ethical issues arising from various aspects of Zionism - a conversation that is vital to the quest for a just peace in Israel and Palestine. The eleven authors offer a rich diversity of religious faith, academic research, and practical experience, as they represent all three Abrahamic faiths and five different Christian traditions. Among the many themes that run through Zionism and the Quest for Justice in the Holy Land is the contrast between exclusivist narratives, both biblical and political, and the more inclusive narratives of the prophetic Scriptures, which provide the theological foundation and the moral imperative for human liberation. Readers will be drawn into a compelling, readable, and stimulating series of essays that tackle many of the complex issues that still confound clergy, politicians, diplomats, and academic experts.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'It is an angry book: horrified at what Israel has been doing, but also infuriated at other Christians' unwillingness to censure it [...] It includes chapters representing a broad swath of theological opinion - including a liberal rabbi, a Palestinian Muslim, and Roman Catholic and Orthodox writers, as well as a succession of American Protestants.' - William Whyte, Church Times, 29th May 2015 'Although there is a great diversity of approach, the style is accessible and welcoming even to those who are attempting to understand the conflict for the first time.' - Mary Grey, Modern Believing, 56.3, July 2015 '[Christians] have ignored the suffering of the Palestinian people - and this volume is a powerful cry to stop.... The essays are very clearly written and an excellent introduction to the topic.... This book should be required reading for all who are concerned with the Middle East, and especially for those who... start with an instinctive sympathy for Israel. Collectively, the essays present a withering indictment of that State - not only of particular military actions or political decisions taken in its defense, but of its very foundations.' - Peter Waddell, Reviews in Religion and Theology, Volume 24 Issue 4, October 2017
