    A fast-paced, engaging history of modern Zionism

    Part history, part politics, part comparative religion, David Brog¿s Standing With Israel reads like an epic novel. In brief strokes, he paints vibrant portraits of many characters in the saga of Israel¿s creation, some deservedly famous, others more obscure than they should be. Standing With Israel is necessary reading for anyone wishing to understand the history and the theology of Christian Zionism. From Herzl¿s first contacts in European diplomatic circles to the Balfour Declaration to the United States¿ acknowledgment of Israel, Brog details how at each step, Christian Zionists paved the way to Jewish Statehood. He traces the history of Christian Antisemitism, and of Christian Philosemitism, and explains how theology is at the root of both. Brog thoroughly debunks the conventional wisdom that says Evangelicals support Israel to speed the Second Coming. Whereas they believe that Israel is a sign of the approach of the millennium, they believe that other such signs include a general increase in immorality, apostasy, and, ultimately, the rise of the Anti-Christ. Since Evangelicals do everything in their power to fight these other signs of the End of Days, it is not reasonable to believe that they support Israel because Israel¿s existence is a sign of the End of Days. Furthermore, they believe that the Second Coming will occur after a massive invasion of Israel ¿ so if they really based their Middle East politics on apocalyptic beliefs, they would try to bring about a massive invasion of Israel, rather than staunchly supporting Israel. Ultimately, Standing With Israel is an eloquent plea to Jewish leaders to embrace the support of Christian Zionists. They would do well to heed it.

    Standing With Israel

    Brog goes to bat for evangelicals who demonstrate their support for the Jewish nation in Standing With Israel: Why Christians Support the Jewish State, but what makes this volume unusual for the Christian market is that the author is Jewish¿and not Messianic. Having worked for a number of years for U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., the author brings an interesting political and historical perspective to the subject at hand. Brog¿s extensive research into the roots of anti-Semitism, the development of Christian Zionism and the decline of replacement theology¿which sees the church as having taken the place of the Jews as God¿s chosen people¿began with his own desire to learn whether Christian Zionists are, in fact, true friends of the Jews or enemies in disguise. He concludes with the assertion that evangelicals who support Israel are 'nothing less than the theological heirs of the righteous Gentiles who sought to save Jews from the Holocaust.' Christians who support Israel will appreciate being seen for who they are by a Jewish author. This well-reasoned and thoughtfully presented book will appeal to readers inside and outside the Christian market. ¿Christine D. Johnson
