relationship between Jews and Christians. In the beginning, we as Christians did not understand that God has always had a plan for the people of God and for the nation of Israel today. This book is a must read and valuable tool for any Christian or Jewish friend to have in their library. The information may change your worldview and your life! I highly recommend it to anyone.
Peter R. Henry4 Stars Out Of 5December 15, 2009Peter R. HenryI cannot say whether I agree with Dispensationalism or everything the author says, however having read the book in full, I can say that I believe it to be a balanced explanation of Christian Zionism. It is interesting that the author, David Brog, is not a Christian. He states in his preface that he is a Jew; not a Messianic Jew or a Jew for Jesus. He goes on to say that he does not believe that the Messiah has ever appeared on Earth. Nor is he an alienated or self-hating Jew. He embraces his Jewish faith. I have not read any opposing books, so I can only go on what Brog says in this book. Anyone interested in learning about Christian Zionism should read this book.
Denise Hurlburt5 Stars Out Of 5May 19, 2009Denise HurlburtThis is by far one of the most significant books I have ever read... an absolute read for any person interested in Christian/Judeo history. If not interested, you'll change and be so blown away that you can't put it down!
Marilyn Mansi5 Stars Out Of 5December 20, 2007Marilyn MansiA wonderfully researched book on the history of antisemitism within the church, and how evangelical Christians are now Israel's friend and ally. Written by an influential scholarly religious Jew. A must for Jews and Christians to read.
