Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sat next to the author of this book in one of those comfortable chairs in a large chain bookstore. He was paging through a book I liked so I started a conversation. He said he was author and had written 2 books. He was particularly proud of this one and the title sounded interesting - I too think the US provides Israel a too large a percentage of our foreign aid. So I bought it. It is mostly (in terms of pages) an extended introduction to the theology of the Church of Christ (that so-called non-denomination group of Christians that "fears for the soul" of the rest of Christendom). And a rather amatuerish theology at that; just what one would expect from retired individual without formal theological training. His eschatology was very selective in terms of synthetizing the hints from the whole of the bible (not unlike any of the endtimes crowd). {I'm a pan-millenialist myself - it will all "pan" out in the end}.

The only reason to give it two stars is that he eventually gets around to the subject in the title and quotes some anonymous CIA insiders who questioned the favoritism the US grants Israel. But that does not make it worth the price.

But he was a nice guy and even gave me a copy of his other book on Secular Humanism.
