Zionism through Christian Lenses
Ecumenical Perspectives on the Promised Land
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Zionism is a topic on which there is much confusion among Christians. Many Christians have the impression they should be pro-Zionist in order to overcome Christian anti-Semitism and give appropriate support to the State of Israel. How Zionism is related to the Christian tradition is poorly understood. Carole Monica Burnett has filled an important lacuna with Zionism through Christian Lenses, covering topics such as Zionism in Scripture, in ancient and modern Christianity, and in Catholic social teaching."

"In the midst of the dilemma and crisis of the quest for peace, each contributor uses his or her lens to analyze the problem and offer helpful suggestions to promote a solution based on the demands of international law, as well as a solution worthy of faith in the God who loves all, cares for all people equally, and works through us to include rather than exclude the other. . . . It is time to listen to the voices of these insightful contributors."
--From the Foreword by Naim S. Ateek, Director, Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center, Jerusalem
