Why do some Christians vilify Israel, yet some are amongst Israel’s strongest supporters? Why does Christianity have such divergent views on Jews and Israel? What is the basis of the quarrel between some of the older denominations and the newer evangelical or fundamentalist denominations? On what exactly are the Christian Zionists basing their support for Israel? "Those That Bless You, I Will Bless: Christian Zionism in Historical Perspective" by Professor Paul C. Merkley attempts to answer these and other fascinating questions. Merkley examines the origins of Christian Zionism and recalls the story of Christian attitudes towards the Jews over the two millennia since the destruction of the Second Temple and provides a scholarly overview of Christian Zionism and a deeper understanding of Christian attitudes towards Israel. In Several books and many more articles and public lectures, Professor Paul Merkley has described the part that Christian friends of Israel played in bringing about the creation of the State in 1948 and sustaining it against its enemies ever since. Now he takes us back to the origins of Christian Zionism in exegesis of Scripture. Confronting the historical distortions of the anti-Zionists, he provides a calm, proud and scholarly defense of Christian Zionism. For readers seeking a deeper understanding of Christian attitudes towards Israel, this is a must read.

About the Author:

Paul Charles Merkley was born and educated in Toronto and taught History for over forty years in Canada as well as in California. He has been a visiting Professor of American Studies at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Among several books, his most recent was "American Presidents, Religion and Israel" (Praeger, 2004). He has delivered scholarly papers on Christian Zionism in Israel, Canada and the United States and is active with the Canadian branch of International Christian Embassy, Jerusalem. He served as Foreign Policy Advisor to Stockwell Day, MP, for six years (2004-2010) and is currently at work on a book on Canadian Conservatives and Israel.

Review:

(A) powerful account of the noble legacy and just aims of Israel s Christian friends... For more than two decades, Merkley has built a reputation for authoritative scholarship on the subject. In his latest work, he recounts the entire history of Christian Zionism as a respected and godly movement. As Merkley demonstrates, the Christian Zionist viewpoint actually has the most distinguished theological pedigree imaginable the sure promises of God delivered by sworn oath in the Old Testament and clearly vouched for in the New. The book propounds that most Christians still believe the effort to restore Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel is among the most worthy projects ever undertaken, and that Israel s cause remains just (and) that the forces that sought to prevent Israel s emergence in 1948 and have tried ever since to destroy her are immoral and will not prevail. (T)he book is based on many years of research in historical archives, and reflects Merkley s considerable experience in publicly advocating for Israel in a range of academic and media settings. Yet it is accessible to readers who have little acquaintance with the subject. - --David Parsons, Jerusalem Post Christian Edition

Dr. Merkley explores one of the most contentious issues of modern Christian theology and politics - the issue of Christian attitudes to the Jewish homeland, Israel.

He takes readers back to the origins of Christian-Zionism in exegesis of Scripture and recalls the story of Christian attitudes towards the Jews over the two millennia since the destruction of the Second Temple. Confronting the historical distortions of the anti-Zionists, he provides a calm, proud and scholarly defense of Christian Zionism. For readers seeking a deeper understanding of Christian attitudes towards Israel, this is a must read. The Lord said to Abram, Leave your own country, your kinsmen, and your father s house, and go to a country I will show you. I will make you a great nation. I will bless you and make your name so great that it shall be used in blessings: Those that bless you I will bless, Those that curse you, I will execrate. All the families on earth Will pray to be blessed as you are blessed. (Genesis 12:1-5). Seller Inventory # AAV9780986941412
