About-

Dear to the hearts of many Christians is the land of the Bible, which today is convulsed by strife. Contradictory claims about the past, present, and future of this land can bewilder us. The essays in this volume invite Christians of every denomination to share in perspectives that are solidly grounded in Scripture and tradition, yet serve as alternatives to the currently prevailing approaches. A Lutheran, two Roman Catholics, two Episcopalians (one of whom is also a member of the American Baptist Church), an Eastern Orthodox Christian, and a Congregational (United Church of Christ) pastor explore the ramifications, for today's ongoing crisis, of ancient Israel's Covenant, of the early church's theological insights, and of the post-Reformation experiences of various branches of Christianity.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"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."
--Rosemary Radford Ruether, Professor of Church History, Claremont School of Theology and Graduate University

"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
