      The origins, development and politics of Christian Zionism are brought out in considerable detail in this well-researched, balanced and very timely book by the noted activist scholar Dan Cohn. Christian Zionism preceded Zionism amongst both secular and rabbinic Jews, and much of the initiative for this came from within the United Kingdom. Expectations of a national return of the Jews to their homeland, often called Restorationism, were widely held amongst the Puritans, also heralding greater tolerance and the gradual readmission of Jews to England.

        The Case for a ‘New Christian Zionism’ Gerald McDermott challenges simplistic thinking about Israel’s past, present, and future. Nathan Finn J Zionism and Pseudo-Christianity, usually refered to by its proponents with the oxymorons “Christian Zionism” and “Restorationism“, is a concept developed by some alleged Christians that Talmudic Jews should be given complete control of the Holy Land, and that establishment of the State of Israel in , is in accordance with Biblical.

        The Historical Roots of Christian Zionism, its Theological Basis and Political Agenda - Duration: The Jerusalem Fund & Palestine Center 8, views In , Christian Zionist Lord Balfour was able to achieve a British Declaration to support the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine [4]. The influence of Christian Zionism is evident today in widespread uncritical Christian support for Israel.
