Product Description

An intellectual discussion about the fraternal twin movements: Zionism and American Pentecostalism.

Everyone interested in Israel and its relationships with religious groups in the United States will be enthralled with this thoroughly researched and thoughtfully presented examination of two world-changing movements.

Shifting Romance with Israel is an intellectual discussion about the fraternal twin movements: Zionism and American Pentecostalism, birthed at the beginning of the 20th century. Both newborns, initially treated as weak and infantile in a religiously hostile world, had a basis of ideological support in three centuries of American myth and motif.

The burgeoning Pentecostal movement of the early decades of the century had great difficulty persuading Christian contemporaries of the legitimacy of their unique doctrine. To assure the perpetuity of the Pentecostal movement, a Latter Rain ideology was created, which used the contemporary Zionist revival as corroborating evidence to restore Israel to Zion and the Church to its radical first-century apostolic essence.

Full of credible research and biblically supported substance, the truths within will cause Jews and Christians alike to consider their spiritual relationship with Israel.

    Dr. Raymond L. Gannon traces the parallel growth of the Pentecostal and Zionist movements through the 20th Century in his book "The Shifting Romance with Israel." He examines the growing ambivalence of the American Evangelical and Pentecostal movements toward the nation of Israel to provide an in depth study and analysis.

    I found Gannon's development of the historical, biblical, and eschatological views and their influence on American Pentecostalism ideals at the beginning of the 20th century fascinating. He begins with the views of the New World Puritans working back through the understanding espoused by church leaders including: Luther, Calvin, John Fox, and the earlier Puritans Theologians. He also introduces the pre-millennialism, dispensational, and restoration movements and their unique differences.

    In addition to the historical influences leading up to the formation of the ideology of Pentecostalism, Gannon analyzes the ideology of Zionism, including a look at Anti-Semitism, and Messianic Zionism.

    Extensive end notes add credence to Gannon's meticulous research and also serve as a resource for future study for the serious student of prophecy and eschatology. An accompanying glossary helps the reader identify more closely with unique vocabulary included throughout the analysis.

    "The Shifting Romance with Israel" is must reading for every Evangelical, Pentecostal, and Mainstream Denominational leader. The reader should make the book available to everyone within their sphere of influence. Highly recommended.

    A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own. As reviewed for Midwest Book Review.
